Tekke Turkoman, Gilt Silver and Carnelian Pendant.

Sorry, this item is no longer available.

Here’s a lovely, relatively large Tekke Turkoman “fire gilt” silver “asyk” pendant.
With very well defined symmetrical, scrolling foliate, gilt designs swirling on a silver base and a central flat round carnelian set in a raised flower.
Very sturdily made with a broad (8 mm) hole for suspension from a thick cord, choker or substantial snake chain(remember it’s not the chain, but the end that has to get through the hole.)
In very good condition, quite shiny with the beginnings of a patina in the recesses.

(Oh, and the backgrounds are William Morris Wallpaper designs, not Russian Export Cottons, however, the latter would have been influenced by whatever was popular in Europe at the time.
And I’m sure William Morris, Liberty and the Arts and Crafts movement, as a whole, would have liked this traditionally handcrafted “asyk”!)

Age: Late 20th Century.

Size: H 101 mm x W 64 mm
