Description 

 

Blackened Brass

Size: 1.7" X 4" / 4.2 cm X 10 cm

 

This beautiful hamsa will add a touch of beauty to what would otherwise be an unexciting bunch of keys! It features and ornate foliate engraving typical of North African artwork. Uniquely, the thumb of the hamsa is in the shape of a rooster's head.

 

The original object was a pendant hanging from a synagogue lamp made in Tetuan, Morocco approximately in the early 20th century. It belongs to the Feuchtwanger Collection, purchased and donated to the Israel Museum by Baruch and Ruth Rappaport, Geneva.

 

This item comes with a certificate of authenticity of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem. Enclosed is a short description of its historical background in English and Hebrew.
