Roman cameo glass,1st century B.C. The present example was made in two stages: the general shape was first blown, casing the layer of one colour over another; the outer layer of white glass was then cut away and carved with the help of a cutting wheel and hand tools which further cut, faceted, scraped, ground and polished, revealing the contrasting blue layer which in turn was also worked, 14 cm high.

This is a huge Yemeni belt in high grade silver with mysterious symbols. (See more photos in the comments) Featuring coin pendants strung on silver chains with profuse bells. Each coin shape is marked differently. Some have glass stones: red, purple, blue, green, and clear. Some are castings of a 1912 gold sovereign showing St George slaying the dragon. Some have strange markings including cross-hatches, the roman numerals "X B V" and floral shapes. One coin is marked with David's star.
