Query – jade cup (1976 exhibition cat. no. 116)

Dear H-Islamart list members,

I am currently searching the whereabouts of the jade cup that was exhibited at the Hayward Gallery exhibition, The Arts of Islam, in 1976 (cat.no. 116). I would very much appreciate any information on this object. Please write directly to me (ykadoi@transoxiana.net).

Thank you.

Yuka Kadoi
