About This Item

Mecca-Cairo Ephemera. Very Good. No Binding. Fine handmade Silver ring dedicated "from the Sherif Hussein, Emir of Hejaz to (Sir Henry) McMahon". carved and enameld in gold, with natural stone contains natural formation shows a man riding on a lion inside jungle, and the stone is fixed by lion claws shapes. The McMahon–Hussein Correspondence, or the Hussein–McMahon Correspondence, was an exchange of letters (14 July 1915 to 30 January 1916) during World War I, between Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca, and Sir Henry McMahon, British High Commissioner in Egypt, concerning the political status of lands under the Ottoman Empire. Growing Arab nationalism had led to a desire for independence from the Ottoman Empire. In the letters Britain agreed to recognize Arab independence after WWI "in the limits and boundaries proposed by the Sherif of Mecca", not including areas in which France had interests. This was in exchange for Arab help in fighting the Ottomans, led by Hussein bin Ali. Later, the 1916 Sykes–Picot Agreement between France and UK was exposed showing that the two countries were planning to split and occupy parts of the promised Arab country. One of the unique masterpieces remained from the Hussein-McMahon correspondence.
