Details

Antique Qing dynasty hollow repousse coin-silver ornamental chime. Chime is very soft and can be used as a pendant with a minimum of sound.  Same design front and back.  Suspended from a cord loop with carnelian bead and pang knot.   2.25" from top of knot to bottom of chime 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.

It was believed that sound of a bell could repel evil spirits.

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.
