Seller: jakossak (5) 100%, Location: Phoenix, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 303097337214 Tekke Turkoman (or sometimes spelled Turkemen or Turkman) dowry necklace purchased from antique dealer Conway of Asia out of California back in the 1980s. The paperwork that came with the necklace indicates it is Circa 1800s. The necklace comes with a handwritten, wax stamped and signed tag by Peter Conway owner of Conway of Asia that describes the piece as follows:"Dowry necklace of the powerful Tekke Turkoman tribe, Samarlandi (sp?), Russia. Amulet set with Cherry Amber bearing inscription of verses extolling the virtues of Allah. Amulet has 24k gold vermeil, a technique of gold chasing indigenous to this tribe. Red Cherry Amber beds are fossilized resins from Biblical Cedars found along shores of Coral Sea, and believed to bring bearer good providence. Silver beads once held silk threads from Holy Priests' robes. Smallest silver beads derived from melted Russian rubles and significant of family's wealth."This necklace is beautiful. Just an additional note to hopefully make anyone interested in bidding more comfortable with me as a seller. I have not used ebay in over 10 years and, as a result, ebay closed my old account. I had 100% positive feedback on about 50-60 transactions for what that's worth. Material: Gold
