Large vintage Turkoman pendant with glass jewels.  About 7.5 inches long and 6.25 inches across.  Dangles make a nice jingle.  Mixed metals are silvery to slightly brassy and unpolished.  This piece is large and impressive and would look fantastic on a costume belt.  There are no specific attachment bales, but there are many holes around the endges of this piece that could be used to sew through and attach to any costuming piece. This is one half of a coat clasp pendant pair.  These pieces are sewn one on each side of the coat opening, with one of the pieces having a hook and the other having a small ring or "eye" for the hook to attach too to keep the coat /cloak closed.  This specific piece is the hook half of the pair.  The other piece to this pair has been long since lost, and I have only this half of the set. 

The Turkoman are an ethnic group native to Central Asia, primarily the Turkmen nation state of Turkmenistan. Smaller communities are also found in Iran, Afghanistan, North Caucasus (Stavropol Krai), and northern Pakistan.  The major Turkmen tribes are Tekke, Yomut, Ersari, Chowdur and Saryk. The most numerous are the Tekke.  The Turkmen lifestyle was heavily invested in horsemanship and horse-breeding.  In spite of changes prompted by the Soviet period, the Turkmen have remained very well known for their horses, the Akhal-Teke desert horse and also for their unique and beautiful jewelry traditions.
