Turkmen Vintage Tribal Amulet Jewelry - Collectible

This one-of-a-kind vintage Turkmen (Turkoman) tribal amulet hair pendant was skillfully handcrafted during the early 1900's in Turkmenistan Central Asia. The lower portion is an ornate hollow amulet case (tumar); one end of the tumar opens for storing secrets, wishes, and prayers.

Incised stylized birds wings and flames are accented with gold-gild - a classic Turkmen technique. The oval-shaped colorful beads were deliberately placed to ward off the evil eye.

The upper portion of this spectacular pendant has a sturdy hook for fastening to the hair, headpieces, and other head gear. This hair pendant can also be easily converted to a necklace pendant, or fastened to clothing. Collectible old tribal jewelry from the nomadic Turkmen tribe.
