HEIGHT minus cork: 3" - HEIGHT of cork: 7/8" - DIAMETER of cork: 5/8" - Six COINS - DIAMETER of coins: 1 " - TOTAL WEIGHT: 1.5 ounces
This piece is an example of beautiful craftsmanship and design created for an everyday object - essentially a simple cork bottle stopper.
The design is Middle Eastern. The 6 (very worn) silver coins show the remains of Arabic writing.
While the stopper components show good age, I believe that the cork is a replacement.
All of the components are securely attached with jump rings or, as with the cork, with a silver loop and staple going from top to bottom.
The coins, when moving,
sound like a delicate wind chime.
