Ancient Manuscript Review 15 : Antique Indian Quran ( 200 years old)

This is a small size Indian handwritten Quran. The first 2 pages are decorated with gold water & blue marble. In addition to that, there are 7 stages ( Manzil) of Quran where the pages are decorated with gold floral motives. This is the first time I have seen such Quran and I am so pleased to have acquired it. This Quran is complete and in an excellent condition.
