A striking large silver hamsa with moulded salamander from Tetouan, Morocco, made circa 1970. The salamander is a protective symbol, perceived to protect the wearer from all harm. The chiselled patterns feature flowers and strong tribal motifs. A lovely unique item, made of high quality silver (tested).
