The high karat gold pendant in the form of a scroll container would have carried small prayers or blessings. The cylindrical form is elaborately decorated in high relief with a winged cherub surrounded by scrolling vines and a bird depicted on the opposite side, the ends capped with rosettes and protruding granules. Meant to be worn as a pendant, it has been restrung on a necklace of Peruvian turquoise and antique gilded silver Islamic beads.

Dimensions:  Necklace length: 23 inches (58.42 cm); Scroll container length: 2 inches (5.08 cm)

Condition:  The pendant is intact and in excellent condition overall.   

Provenance:  Ex. Sumer Gallery, (Henry Anavian) NYC, acquired 1970s-1980s, and then by descent to family.
