Persian Beehive Covers
A lot of three rare late 19th / early 20th century high fired ceramic beehive covers. The Persian tradition of bee keeping, a practice which has been largely replaced by modern methods, involves the manufacture of beehives made from reed, cane and mud. To protect bees from the cold of winter, these cocoon like shelters were were molded and shaped into cylinders, sealed on one end with a wooden plate, stacked in rows and then sealed on the opposite end with a ceramic cover like the one offered here. See Islamic Art: The Past and Modern by Nuzhat Kazmi, for similar examples.
Dimensions: 8 1 /2 inches diameter x 3/8 inch thick.
Condition notes: in good, original condition.
