  • The still mysterious pendant for me.  Love the different design on them.  They do come from a long time ago.  Know them as a head decoration on the Wollo girls.  `but can also be seen on the photo(drawing) in a very large type as a necklace on the little prince Alemayehu son of the Emperor Teowdros in 1868, the one who was taken as a captive to England during Queen Victoria's time.
