A pretty miniature blue glass juglet with applied glass design. Handle broken off and bottom chipped off. A chain can run right through it, and it would make a pretty and historic pendant! According to scholars these amulets were purchased as relics (souvenirs) by Christian pilgrims to the holyland, much as souvenirs are bought in modern times in the Souk of the old city. Can still be attached by the handle and worn as a pendant!
