An elegant Tekke tumar with a distinctive character based on its decoration .... the profusion of water symbols both engraved on and cut from the silver surface .. an orchestra of carnelians (22): dark and fire, tablecut and cabochon, oval and teardrop shaped ... set vertically, horizontally and diagonally ...and a choir of five horned figures standing proud at the edges of the triangle. What is clear is that this expresses the hope for the birth of a future generation and for the protection of the woman who wears it. Nineteenth century. Turkestan, Dimensions: 29 x 25cm.
