Vintage Triangular Bedouin Pendant from Yemen


An old triangle pendant in a common Bedouin style to both Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The pendant may have originally been used as a head dress ornament. It is a crudely made one, not made by a master for sure, but made in the usual way that these triangular pendants are, with beading and roping and red colored beads. It has a double bail and 6 sets of double dangles (one is missing) that end in bell shaped elements. The pendant is made of mixed metals and some glue material appears underneath two of the smaller beads. These imperfections are reflected in the price.

The pendant measures 10 x 7 cm (4 x 2 1/4") and the dangles are an additional 7 cm (3").
