I sold this piece sometime ago already.
how much does this beauty cost
Well there you are Howah, how flowers can bring you on the right path.! And Frankie's knowledge and experience. Great. GR. Ingrid.
Nice to be reminded of this, and I too still think, as I did in March 2013, that it is Bulgarian, and the more so after your comments, Frankie. I had not seen this again in the interim, and like it very much - lively, gutsy, "natural", as is not untypical of Bulgarian pieces and of their charm. Well done, Howah!
The whole aspect of this piece convinces me that it is Bulgarian. Tulips are very indigenous here, being a neighbour of Turkey. Also the lunulae shapes are commonly used. The enamelling shows every sign of being Bulgarian, too, being typically of muted shades. The bell flower shapes I have not seen previously so I find those particularly interesting. Whatever and wherever, it's a lovely necklace.
Dear Howah. Beautiful item and such a good complete condition. I would think it to be more a tulip design as tulips started out in Turkey, a very expensive flower and later was taken over by the Dutch. Romania is only separated with Turkey through the black sea, bound to have trade with each other. It couldn.t be Turkeys? Gr. Ingrid.
Pomegranate / Tulip design
You dont think it is Afghani ? the pomegranate design with the inverted triangle is a typical Afghan amulet design
Guess what, Howah......me too!!
All I`ve ever found is an old Rumanian coin. Indoors I did once find a hidden banknote of very high denomination. No longer legal tender, of course!
Thanks Frankie! Wish you could find something similar to this using a metaldetector on your land!
