Vintage Sinai Bedouin Baby Toy for Protection [Egypt]
Regular price €147,00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
This amazing piece of history is approximately 90-95 years old and comes from the Bedouin of the Egyptian Sinai. This is a baby's toy that provides protection with the soft chiming of bells scaring away bad spirits. Additional blessing and protection is provided with the 'fatima/hamsa hand' located at the bottom.
- Material- Made of brass
- Width- 8.5cm
- Weight- 0.6kg's
This may be a small piece (the size of my hand) but is hugely significant as the loss of Bedouin culture, in the Sinai, continues. It would be lovely hung in a window or door way as a windchime. Or above a baby cot. So many possibilities.
We'd love to hear from you if you have any questions.
