This silver box with small beads hanging was used by royal women to keep the small golden The Holy Quran in it.  On either side it has geometric patterns used by royal women during Ottoman rule as they had intricately designed jewellery.  They could tie these boxes around their waist or neck; this was used in the 16th century.
