The catalog in front of us includes very important ethnic items, Islamic and Jewish. A very important collection of Palestinian adornments, as well as many Ottoman and Turkmen items.
The items have been carefully selected and come from dozens of collections from all over Israel. Among them is a collection of Ruthi Ofer that was left to her about 20 years ago by her late husband, Yuli Ofer. The collection was displayed at her home until recently. Her collection consists of Islamic and Jewish jewelry with a clear emphasis on Yemenite goldsmithing and Bukhara crafts.
There are many incredibly rare items that do not often come up for auction. The items in the catalog can be used as jewelry and ornaments for women or men. Some are better suited for display as part of private or commercial design, and others will go to public or private museums around the world. Many of the items are in museum quality, with similar items on display in leading museums around the world, such as the Metropolitan Museum in the United States, the Museum of Oriental Art in Moscow, the Islamic Museum in Jerusalem, the Israel Museum, and the Beit Hatfutsot Museum.
