Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:   

There exist many different kind of amulets from Iraq in the Gross Family Collection, but this is the only way based on a textile. Highly unusual is that this band of textile, embroidered with gold threads, carries a number of amuletic devices in the form of a bracelet to be attached by loops and buttons. It is apparently an amulet for the general protection of the wearer.
