Book with more than a thousand Iraqi silver antique pieces. According to the introduction in the book.

This is what we will briefly , try to answer in this publication , and then we will shift our focus to the existing pieces of art that were produced in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and what we should do to preserve this heritage and ensure its continuity and improvement.
