Vintage Silver Yemeni 'Hirz' Amulet

£70.00

Made from high quality silver (tested), this cylindrical hirz amulet from Yemen would have contained Koranic scripture verses in its hollow interior. The cap is now sealed and it is unknown whether or not it contains anything. It is nicely decorated with a floral and leaf design and has bell dangles which are believed to ward off evil and protect the wearer.
