Dimensions: 31.2 x 21 x 11.5 cm. Passed down through several generations of the same family to the present owner. The neo-Achaemenid style was initially confined to Qajar stone reliefs, the most famous of which were commissioned by Fath'Ali Shah. It became popular after the 1880s (Fellinger, L'Empire des roses, Chefs d'œuvre de l'art persan du XIXe siècle, Musée du Louvre-Lens and ed. Snoek, Ghent, 2018, p. 61). Inspired by Achaemenid sculptures from Persepolis and Sassanid bas-reliefs, this style was all the rage in the Shiraz region. A carved alabaster mantel panel features the same scene as on the lid of the casket (Lerner, Three Achaemenid "Fakes": A reevaluation in the light of 19th century Iranian architectural sculpture, Expedition Magazine, Penn Museum, 1980, pp. 13-15).
