Description

The following description was prepared by William Gross:   

In the treaditional Jewish wedding ceremony, the bride wears special clothes and jewelry, some which are particular to the Jewish tradition. Jewelry plays a prominent part in the grandeur of the wedding costume. In several places there is a special head covering for the bride. So it is with this cap for the Jewish bride in Tunisia. The cap is covered in gold colored discs with images of fish, representing fertility. The front is finged with reproductions of coins, as if for a dowry and the traditional hamsa if found in fine gold filigree.
