Antique Ethiopian or Yemeni amulet pendant
Decorative hirz amulet with a central red glass cabochon.
Red glass cabochons like those used here are often used in Yemeni jewellery to bring good health to the wearer, especially during childbirth. An eye-catching piece, made early 20th century.
This antique piece is made of silver alloy and is likely to have been made in either Ethiopia or Yemen.
Slightly misshapen. See photos.
