I offer here some cultural background on the wedding customs of the nineteenth century in Yemen. The bridal dowry of that time was supposed to include as much silver as possible, because the dowry served the purpose that a nice large cash gift would serve in modern times. It was given partly as the bride price that the husband had paid and partly as a gift from the bride's family. The dowry was the woman's own household bank account and her insurance policy in case her husband was disabled or died before she died.
The amount of silver jewelry that the bride wore that day also showed her honored status. For that reason, even the bride whose husband and family could not afford to give her the 10 or 20 pounds of silver that some brides wore, the family could rent a collection of bridal jewelry from a merchant's shop. For that reason, some bridal necklaces would include pieces from a variety of silversmiths. The small Bedihi beads made of stacked layers of silver granules are also a rare find at present.Maria Theresa succeeded her father, Charles VI, in 1740 at the age of 23. Her father had tried to guarantee the female succession through the Pragmatic Sanction, although Prince Eugene of Savoy believed he would have done better to have left her an efficient army and a full treasury! She was Queen of Hungary and of Bohemia, Archduchess of Austria (the title of Empress came in 1745 when her husband, Francis Stephen, was elected Holy Roman Emperor), and she defended her lands and rights courageously in the War of the Austrian Succession against Frederick of Prussia and his allies. Internally her reign was marked by great reforms in the areas of justice, finance, education, agriculture and medicine. Maria Theresa created the foundations of the modern state.great condition
