Details

Antique Qing dynasty hollow repousse coin-silver ornamental amulet with 2 bats on either side of a circular design. Same design front and back. Hangs from turquoise bead and cord with pang knot. Turquoise and filigree capped carnelian beads hang from the bottom of the ornament. This type of ornament would have been part of a larger ritual or ceremonial piece during the dynasty period. Ornaments and amulets from the Qing Dynasty were reassembled for export in the mid-1900's in China. Length from top of knot to bottom of turquoise bead is 3 inches

The bat symbolized good fortune, blessings, happiness and prosperity.

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.
