This is a very unusual and collectible piece made of a native coin metal alloy referred to as gillet. This tribal headdress was made for a young Turkoman bride. The "hat" part is solid gillet rather than the usual pieces sewn onto a suzani. With bezel set lapis lazuli and turquoise, this piece features embossed stylized metal plates soldered onto the base. The "tail" has pendants and medallions sewn onto vintage suzani fabric. There is sort of a decorated flower spike on top with dangles and bells. Black tassels with white beads complete this piece.

This beautiful Turkoman Tribal carnelian bra makes a beautiful, shimmery jingle when you move. Worn over a choli or with a vest, this finely crafted bra drapes and moves beautifully and is very comfortable to wear. It is adjustable with a string tie in back. I would recommend stiching it to your costume, as is traditional with most Turkoman jewelry. Made of a traditional silver plated and gilded silver coin metal alloy called gillet, and set with carnelian stones, this bra weighs a little under a pound. A really stunning piece!

Older Strand of North African amber trade beads. Shaped slightly cylindrically, these beads are 1 1/4" in diameter. Some ends are angled slightly which makes them seem to curve. There are 38 beads in all. These appear to be fashioned to complement Venetian millefiori African trade beads (also known as Goulamine beads). These are temporarily strung, and a few show marks from being burn tested. These are most likely Moroccan.

An early 20th century silver necklace and earrings. Made with Pahlavi coins featuring the Persian symbol of the lion with sword in front of the rising sun. The stylized bows are set with red and pink ruby colored glass. There are two tiers of coins and set rubies. The larger bow is elaborately encrusted with ruby glass and dangles. The smaller bow is topped with Avila, the twin headed eagle, and it's dangling coin appears Turkish as it features a Tughra, or seal of Solomon. The earrings feature crescent moons with stars and bezel set ruby dangles and have a 2.25 inch drop. I believe the earrings were added later. The necklace is 24 inches long with the bow pendant and dangles dropping nearly 5 inches.

This tribal Egyptian silver bracelet is a very unusual piece. The bracelet itself dates back to the turn of the 20th century when silver, rather than alloy was used. It was refashioned into a bowl by adding the bottom plate around 1960. Egyptian silver is normally 90% pure, and this does have a hallmark on the bottom, which is what was used for dating it. The bottom plate is decorated in a traditional Mamluk inspired foliate design. This measures 4 .5 by 4 inches across, and is a little over .5" tall, and weighs nearly four ounces. This would make a fabulous change tray for your dresser.
