Silver and Brass Kitab

"Natalie, you call this Ketab, like a ketab in Ethiopia is known as a prayer amulet.  This has the same meaning? Lovely pieces so well used. Gr. Ingrid."

Help with identification...

I was wondering if anyone might know what this piece is, what it's used for and where it's from? It looks like brass/copper. I haven't polished this piece so I'm not sure if the granulation detailing is silver or not... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!See More

Hi Natalia, actually I just arrived Australia 2 weeks ago and I love it :)
I like the site and I'm looking forward to see a lot of nice artifacts here, as this is what I do for living :) I work in Handicrafts business and I love everything about it :)

Hi Natalie,

Thanks for the friendly welcome!  I thought I was alone in this passion for all things ethnic and handmade - glad to have found a group of 'like minds'.

Hi Natalie. I see you are in Canberra. I am in Sydney. It's a fabulous site and even more fabulous if you ever get the opportunity to go on one of Sarah's bead tours of Morocco which I was lucky enough to do 2 years ago. Enjoy! Luda
