The ancient game of Polo (Chogan) is a traditional Iranian sport played since 600 B.C. that has inspired many poets, painters and other artists. This sport was played to maintain the combat readiness of the famous and versatile Persian cavalry during the Safavid dynasty (1501-1736 A.D.) at the time of peace.

Polo was played in the world heritage “Naghsh-E-Jahan” Square, being one of the largest and the most beautiful plazas in the world, where the royal family and many spectators from the aristocracy and ordinary people could enjoy watching the match.

The beautiful miniature motifs of Riders and Horses (Painted by miniature artist, Master Badr al-Sama’a), on Wallendorfer pieces, finished with 24 carat gold is a pure masterpiece.
