Persian Issue – November 2017 – Wick Antiques

5th November 2017
Exactly 40 years ago your intrepid newsletter-writer (Caroline) arrived at Isfahan University to teach English for the third year of her degree in Modern Persian (as it was then called, rather than Farsi).  She arrived in a city where every building, office, shop, or even taxi, featured a photograph of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and his wife Shahbanu Farah and left in June 1978 as tanks and troop carriers crouched on every street corner. The rest, as the saying goes, is history – 20th century history. This newsletter is therefore dedicated to the Islamic, particularly Persian, art which inspired her choice of degree and then started her career in antiques and has remained, next to Japanese art, one of her passions.
