Rare Berber Charm Box

Rare Berber Charm Box

Description

19th century, Berber, Morocco

At one time Jewels could make a necklace with many of these protective gorgeous boxes, each unique.  Now we are lucky if she returns with only one.  This single box is a little gem.   There was once a  piece of glass set in the center for added protection but this shadow of past use only makes it more beautiful.  These boxes are made of silver and brass and have a prayer permanently enclosed.  Sometimes it what we don’t see that makes something all the more special.  The cord is hand stitched leather beautifully done in our Marrakech studio.

One of a kind

Charm: 1 3/8 x 1 1/4 x just under 1/4″

Necklace length: 24.75″
