Item details

Italian horn "corno portafortuina"-Wall hanging-Italian horn corno portafortuna handmade with polymer clay
The cornuto, corno, or cornicello is an Italian amulet of ancient origin.
Corno means "horn" and cornicello means "little horn" -- these names refer to a long, gently twisted horn-shaped amulet worn in Italy to protect against the evil eye.
Cornicelli are usually carved out of red coral or made of gold or silver.
The type of horn they are intended to copy is not a curled-over sheep horn or goat horn but rather like the twisted horn of an African eland or something similar.
Over the years they have become rather stylized and now look less like a natural animal horn than they once did.
A regionally popular amulet, they are primarily found in Italy and in America among descendents of Italian immigrants.
You can buy cornicelli at any Italian jewelry store in New York to this day.
Handmade set of fimo polymer clay horn.
Each set is carefully handcrafted and unique, shaped and molded by hand, they all look alike but each piece is truly one of a kind!
This listing is for a set of 1 horn.
Approximate dimensions: 3 inch.
If you need a larger quantity please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to create more pieces for you!

Some help to order if you are new on Etsy :
Payment is due at time of purchase.
I would prefer Paypal payments for overseas purchases. It is the safest, fastest and securest way to send and receive payments online.
You don’t have a Paypal account? There’s no problem: it is possible to use credit cards without having a PayPal account! Just follow the instructions during the checkout with PayPal, click on the Paypal link and see which credit card or debit card payments are accepted.
In case I don’t receive payment, I will wait 5 days, and if you have not contacted me or processed payment, the order will be cancelled and the article will be placed back up for sale.


Se siete nuovi su Etsy, ecco un aiuto:
