Mamluk cap


This is a Mamluk cap, made between 1293 and 1341. It is a silk lampas weave with cintamani circles. It was made in either Egypt or Syria. The dimensions are height-14 cm, width-15.5 cm and depth-10.5 cm.

It is currently in the Cleveland Museum of Art. However, the site does not mention if the cap is for a man or a woman or even a translation of the writing. Please let me know what you think!
