Place of origin: Morocco (made)

Date: ca. 1860

Materials and Techniques: Gilt metal inset with glass

gallery note: This gilt ornament is one of an original pair which would have been worn on the sides of the head by a Moroccan woman. The ornament is formed of an open hoop decorated with five drop pendants. The hoop is attached, by means of a chain, to a heart-shaped pendant set with coloured glass and with two further drop pendants. The heart-shaped piece would have been hooked onto a headdress with the hoop hanging from it at approximately ear level. The most decorative part of the hoop could be seen from the front.
