Details

Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty coin silver hollow basket ornament with silver charms and carnelian bead dangle.  Hangs from a flower ornament attached to silver chain and hook.    Basket is 1 1/4  x  1 3/4 inches.  Total length from top of hook to bottom of dangle is 6 inches.  Basket is same front and back except for the base.  There is a Lotus flower on one side and a crisscross pattern on the other.

A decorated basket such as this one symbolizes abundance.

This is an antique piece from the dynasty that fell in 1911. In the 1970s to the mid 1980s, Chinese workers added beads, cords and chains to these Qing Dynasty artifacts. For the most part the beads and knots attached to this amulet were added during this period. This piece came from the estate of a dealer who acquired many of these artifacts. They have become increasingly rare and today, some reproductions of much poorer quality are being produced.
