I would first like to introduce myself, my name is Aly Gabr, I am Professor of History of Islamic Architecture at Cairo University – Egypt, and have been collecting Islamic art for the past 30 years. It is indeed a great pleasure to write these lines regarding Mr. al-Jashimi’s business whom I have known and dealt with since February 2008. I have to say in all honesty that he is amongst a handful of antiquarians whom I have known and found to be a pleasure to deal with. My experiences have always been highly memorable and pleasurable for the following reasons: first and foremost, the stunning quality of his pieces which to a collector is a mark of research, good taste and a feast to the eyes; secondly, the smile and beautiful soul with which Duraid ushers you into his gallery; and finally, the fair prices he charges. On behalf of all of us who come to London to you - as though in a pilgrimage - I would like to thank you Duraid for making our visits worthwhile. Aly Gabr
