A small silver Yomud tumar dominated by a huge pair of horns facing downwards - and on either side a projection which looks like a horse's head. Various platelets, some showing signs of early gilding, are soldered on. At the very top, above the large oval carnelian set vertically, there is a small round medallion with a seven pointed star. The bozbend tube, decorated with 3 carnelians, opens on the left in order that papers can be stored inside. Everything has a meaning. Dimensions: 15cm x 15cm. Nineteenth century. Possibly Chorezm.
