Antique 5.5 Asian Turkmen Uzbeki Amulet Talisman Pendant Necklace with Coral
Amazing piece that my mother found when she visited family living in Uzbekistan many years ago. It's from that area, and most probably she picked it up in Tashkent or surrounding area. It measures 5-1/2" from tip to tip of the triangle bottom (base), and 4" on the triangle sides. From center tip of triangle to base measures approx. 3, and the little items hanging from the base are approx. The fascinating part about this piece is that one of the sides has a compartment that opens. You can see this in the last 2 pictures.
The other side is made to look like it also does, but it does not open. Metal content unknown, some silver, perhaps a bit of bronze at center adornment.
