    Hi all, Picked up this little sterling charm with a scroll or Prayer inside.
    I think it looks more India or? Any thoughts appreciated.

    Does look more like you would wear as a pendant. Not sure whether that's done.

    I don't think it's Jewish. But I've been wrong before.

    Maybe you could ask a mod to move this to the jewelry forum, instead of furniture?

    It's already in Jewelry, although I don't think there is a way to know when exactly it was moved.

    The ta'wiz, tawiz, muska or taʿwīdh is an amulet or locket worn for good luck and protection common in South Asia. Tawiz worn by Muslims contain verses from the Quran and/or other Islamic prayers and symbols pertaining to magic. The Tawiz is worn by some Muslims to protect them from evil. Wikipedia

    It is a Taweez/Tawiz (amulet) that contains the Shia dua (prayer) Jawshan Kabir, thought to keep the holder safe.
