Ref  WD3   Charivari Amulet

Charivari amulets were prized in Europe for their supernatural ability to bring luck and success to the hunter, as well as protecting him and displaying his prowess. This charivari, circa 1840, is comprised of the horn of a young roebuck and coral figa hands to protect the wearer against the evil eye. The roebuck horn is mounted in an acorn and oak leaf silver surmount and the figas in gold and gilt metal. The robuck horn is 2 and 1/4 inches long and 1/2 an inch wide and the coral figas are 3/4 of an inch long and 1/4 of an inch wide. [Young roebucks shed these tiny antlers in spring - I believe no deer was harmed in the making of this charivari!]
