Vintage Cowbell with Flatweave Hanger 🔔
A cowbell (or cow bell) is a bell worn around the neck of free-roaming livestock so herders can keep track of an animal via the sound of the bell when the animal is grazing out of view in hilly landscapes or vast plains. In Anatolian mountains, nomad shepherds (known as Karakeçili/Karakechili tribes of Taurus mountain) had used these bells and embellished bells with their weavings like this specific cowbell. This antique cowbell is about 80 years old and made of copper.

Silk Rug - Caesarea Ottoman The main pattern of the rug is the tree of life pattern. Tree of life rugs and the concept of “Tree of Life” predates Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions. In its purest form, it stands as the giver of life. However, Oriental rug weavers adapted the design to reflect the meaning compatible with their own local religion and culture. In every tradition in which this motif is found, it is an important symbol of life and abundance.
