Armenian children’s jacket, from eastern Anatolia. Late-Ottoman era, early 20th century. The three flower-like motives (Cypraea shells placed around a blue or green stone) are a traditional Anatolian charm against the 'evil eye'. This kind of amulet is called 'göz' (= eye) in Turkish. (The Russian Museum of Ethnography, St-Petersburg).
