1977 Omani Silver by Ruth Hawley




Scarce first edition of the first work on Omani silver in mint condition.  Still an important book because of its focus on the link  between the design of Omani jewellery and jewellery from ancient history. For a long period this tiny booklet was the only genuine book on Omani silver.

Below you find a Youtube film by the Anglo-Omani society in which Lady Ruth Hawley and  Dr Fahmida Suleman  are interviewed about Omani silver.
