An Antique amulet med silver Scroll capsule with Etched animal and nature ornamentation.Amulet/capsule dates back to middle to late 19th century. Capsule/box/amulet cap shows to have been welded and intentionally sealed.Indicating that the original content is possibly still inside the capsule.Content might range from a scroll with koranic verses, a piece of parchment with dedication or prayer or a part of wedding garment sealed as a proof of unity between married couple. The weight and feel of the capsule/box also gives the impression there might be something inside.however we do want to clarify that we have not opened the item and it is sealed in this way for many many years and therefore we have no proof of there being inside any valuable thing if at all and are selling the amulet necklace as an antique curiosity item. Such scroll boxes were considered good luck amulets with protective qualities and religious attributions. This Scroll box has a small turquoise stone on each side with a twisted rope decoration surrounding them.
