Ancient Manuscript Review 55 : Antique Indian Quran (18th-19th Century)

This is a handwritten Quran from Indian region. Texts are written in Naskh script within yellow frame. A lot of pages are adorned with gold discs.The first & last 2 pages are beautifully gold gilded & illuminated. It's undated but from the design & illumination I would safely estimate it was written between 18th-19th century.
