The study presents amulet cases of the Uzbeks, Tajiks, and Karakalpaks from the late 19th century until the early 20th century taking example from the collections of the State Museum of Arts of Uzbekistan, Samarkand State Museum-Reserve, State Museum of Applied Art and History of Crafting of the Republic of Uzbekistan and National Museum – Náprstek Museum of Asian, African and American Cultures, Czech Republic. In particular, the types and forms of amulet cases, material, processing technique, ornament, and the resulting ethnic and local specifics are analysed. The study aims to differentiate the characteristic features of this prominent group of Central Asian jewellery and thus contribute to the correct identification thereof in connection with professional museum work.
