Traditional protection charm
Cornish Pisky Necklace
Like many Celtic countries Cornwall is rich in fairy lore, and Piskies are the fairy folk who feature most widely in Cornish folk tales. Although they sometimes have a wicked sense of humour, they will help anyone who treats them with respect. Not so long ago almost every Cornish household had some kind of Pisky charm to attract the luck that the good will of the Piskies was thought to bring.
This delightful little pewter Pisky charm is part of our range of items inspired by objects in the Museum, and is hung from a black leather thong.
Made in Cornwall.
The charm is approximately 2.5cm (1″) tall not including loop.
