Details

Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty coin silver hollow basket ornament. Two sided. A turquoise bead with coral hangs at the bottom. Attached to a braided cork with carnelian bead and pang knot. . Basket is 1-1/2" wide. 4" long from top of knot. The components of this pendant would have been parts of larger ritual or ceremonial pieces during the dynasty period.

A decorated basket such as this 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.
