From the Alps

Some pieces from my collection: a traditional Bavarian Charivari, and some Bavarian hunting trophies. You can see some even cooler Charivari here (site's in German). Enjoy.


The Charivari is worn by Bavarian men across their waist during celebrations to make noise.

Most are made of scrap silver, and include hunting trophies, coins, jewels, and crystals. Mine includes Roe deer antler, a Roe deer hoof, coins, and the jaws of a badger.
