Welcome to Husaini Arts. Your dependable source for Islamic Art, Islamic Manuscripts, Quran Manuscripts, Indian & Persian Miniature Paintings. We guarantee all our items to be genuine or your money back!
The majority of our items come from private collections of knowledgeable collectors. Many of these Islamic and Indian arts have been acquired by former owners from major auction houses in Europe. Many collectors eventually let go of items they have cherished for long to make room for new acquisitions. Occasionally we ourselves buy from major auction houses.
Before listing each item, we physically verify each one, referring it to a well known expert in the field if required. Hence we guarantee all our items.
