A keikel, Karakalpakstan. It resembles a Turkoman tumar, but is different. It has, horizontally, a tube (also found in the tumar) which is constructed as a kind of long box, with lid, to contain verses from the Koran. Those would protect the wearer. Karakalpak jewellery is scarce, and often of high quality, so is much collected. This is a fine example, from Linda Pastorino, who is keeping it in her private collection. The workmanship and the design are outstanding, and the condition is fine.

Uzbekistan (probably made in Kiva or Bukhara). Silver-gilt, small turquoises, corals. Truus and Joost Daalder collection, purchased from Linda Pastorino.  Beautifully designed, this is a headdress, which is attached to a very large structure worn on top of the head. The piece is decorated with great finesse and skill. The micro-mosaic pieces of turquoise set off the motifs very well. The tassels are exceptionally good both in design and - *very* exceptionally - in condition.
