This tasbih represents an extremely rare folk art sample from Turkey, the Turkish silver scourge filigree.
Scourge art is specific to the Anatolian Black Sea coast. All components are braided of silver wires composed of extremely tiny silver spirals rolled over silk threads. The whole set presents a state of the art craftsmanship in both shape, color, visual smoothness and design consistency, to reveal the silent nobility of Ottoman classics.
This tasbih is a very delicate work of art and a true collector's item, it is not suited to daily heavy use or to wear as necklace. It must be handled and stored with utmost care and respect. Once it is damaged it cannot be repaired and we do not accept returns for repair. If you look for a tasbih for heavy use do not buy this one, we have many beautiful sterling silver tasbihs for such uses.
