    Large pilgrim flask on Collections Sphere from Khalili Collections

    The front and back of the flask are stamped with the words hajji (Hajj pilgrim), numero 283. A tag attached to the chain carries a similar stamp with the word ‘hajji ’and a blue ceramic bead for protection against the evil eye. The flat back of the flask allowed it to fit comfortably against the flank of a camel or horse.
