A little bit of history and meaning behind this very unusual piece:

Charivari  is a piece of traditional Bavarian costume jewellery made of solid silver adorned with trinkets, gemstone, coins (or possibly medals), horn discs, carved deer teeth, antlers, animal paws, badger hair, or other game teeth. The name charivari (from the Latin caribaria meaning “mess” or “madness”) came into the German-speaking world during the Napoleonic era. Bavarian men wear the charivari on the belt of their lederhosen. The charivari traditionally served as jewellery or as a talisman for a successful hunt. For farmers it served as a valuable status symbol. It could not be bought, was carefully preserved and was passed down in a single family through the generations, earned and treasured.
