    Available Enquire

    This cylindrical amulet box with fine, fully intact silver filigree work is of heavy-guage, high-grade hammered sheet silver. It is surmounted by four eyelets to allow suspension from a cord or chain worn around the neck. The eyelets have obvious wear consistent with age and use.

    One end slides off to reveal the interior of the cannister in which protective Koranic verses and other amulets would have been kept.

    Overall, this is a lovely piece with excellent patina. There are no losses or restorations.
