A rare Victorian carved natural Nephrite Jade depicting a Horned Hand.

Antique natural light green carved Jade - Horned Hand symbol (sign of the horns), with a 14k gold bail (no hallmark - acid tested positive as 14k gold).

This beautiful 19th century Mano Cornuta is exactly as it was originally acquired from a private collector in Italy. In good antique/used condition with the usual small signs of ageing - to which in my opinion only add to its true wonder, the jade has an uneven aged/used quality to it with natural inclusions - small inclusions of dark minerals, mainly graphite. (Antique items are almost always pre-worn and will typically have some level of wear). Please refer to images for condition and further details.

The hand measures approximately 3.2 cm (including bail) by 0.7 cm and it weighs approximately 2.2 grams.

A lovely and specially rare mighty lucky charm against bad luck. Part of my private collection, this is the only antique Jade horned hand I ever had.

“Horned Hand amulet, Corsica Mano cornuta, or ‘horned hand’ amulets are thought to be of ancient Italian origin and are worn as protection against the harmful glance of the Evil Eye. Mano cornuta is one of two hand gestures that are commonly used for this purpose, the second being the mano fica, or ‘figa hand’.”
