This lovely Bedouin temple or hair decoration is circa the 1940s, probably from Hadramawt. These would have been worn to adorn the two sides of the head by hooking them into the headdress rather than through the ears. The metal does not test as silver, though it may have some silver content. 

The dome is decorated with twisted wire and chains hanging from the bottom, ending in ball dangles. The effect is an excellent sound with movement. 

  • The length from the top of the ring to the bottom of the dangles is 10 cm (4").
  • The dome's diameter is 2.7 cm (around 1 1/8").
  • The weight of both is 31 grams.
