All that glitters

[From my parent’s shop on Bowery St.]

A Brazilian hand of fortune, called a “figa” charm. Also known in Italy as “Mano Fico”, an amulet used to ward off the evil eye. Ebony, coral, and 14k gold.

Can’t remember what this is supposed to be but I’m sure its an amulet of some sort, probably also Brazilian. Ebony, 14k gold and coral.

High-pressure steam machine. I knew how to work from 6+ years old!
