Informal Qajar Days

No pomp and circumstance at the Persian Qajar Court.
They were rather informal and easy going. This is a unique photograph from
our family's files picturing my Great, great-Grandmother Mahde-Olia sitting on the Peacock Throne.
To the left is her son King Nassereddin Shah Qajar and to the right the King's sister Ezzat Doleh.
My beloved and late  mother descended directly from her.
