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 metal components are applied over a base made from an old Afghan Suzani. Set with carnelian, this piece features embossed stylized metal plates sewn onto the base. There is sort of a decorated flower spike on top with dangles and bells. It has a little crinkle at the base, but is barely noticeable unless it's pointed out. Colorful metal tassels set with carnelians fringe the face, and there is a Suzani "tail" embellished with embossed metal plates, and tasselled medallions, with white beaded black fringe on the edges.

This is a very unusual and beautiful Yemeni dagger. It measures 13" long and weighs nearly a pound. The sheath is embellished with hand worked filigreed silver set with a piece of coral. Also there are coins on both the front and back of the handle, where most jambiyas only have the brass coins on the front. This work is typical of the Jewish silversmiths of Sanaa. I'm pretty sure this was custom made for it's owner. When the handle is tapped on my teeth, it feels like horn. The lower part of the sheath is made with black and white fur, likely goat, rather than leather, which is extremely unusual. This was made approximately 1880-1920 for ceremonial dress use, so the blade is unsharpened and chromed, a few spots of chrome have flaked off, revealing the steel beneath. Please note, the last two photos were taken with flash, rather than natural light to better show the quality of the horn handle.
