All through the Islamic world ( as well in the Jews of the East and Indians ) Amulet Box pendants are very common, The one for sale here is a very old and elaborate piece , its origin to the best of my knowledge is from the Arabian Peninsula, and though it is hard to say exactly how old it is you can see that it has age and has been worn . The quality of the silver work is top notch. this piece has a opening in the back that some sort of blessing or prayer was inserted into so it is a figurative box of protection.
