This huge Yemeni amulet tube is from the first half of the twentieth century. It is made of mixed metals and decorated with fine filigree all over. With no bails, it is difficult to imagine how this would have been worn. I think it was rather kept at home and contained written incantations to protect the home or the owner.

The scroll holder opens on one side and the lid is held to the body of the tube with a chain.

Dimensions:

  • Length 23 cm  (9").
  • The diameter is 2.7 cm (1 1/8").
  • Weight is 165 g.
