So rare to find original items made by the women who wore them. Obviously a treasure piece collected by a rural woman and put together bit by bit. The elements carefully saved perhaps from previous generations as was usual. This type of fibula was used in numerous regions of the Atlas - a 'Hassani' coin inserted between fleurons.  One is 19th century, one early 20th c. There are four natural fossil amber beads, coral, drawn glass Venetian trade beads, buttons and shells and a worn repurposed central pendant from the Tiznit area. This is an ethnographic piece made by the person who used it. Anti Atlas, possibly Akhsass region. Morocco.
