PROVENANCE

This St. Frank antique topi was worn by a child under the Indian Mughal Empire. The Mughal Empire was a Persianate empire that occupied most of Northern India from the 16th century to the mid 18th century. This period of peace was a prosperous time for art and architecture, blending elements from Islamic, Persian, Ottoman Turkish, Indian, and European Renaissance styles. The Taj Mahal was built during this era and is regarded by many as the finest example of Mughal architecture. In many Mughal paintings, men and children are depicted wearing these topi, or hats, during prayer.
