Details

Antique Qing dynasty hollow coin silver monkey amulet with a coral bead. Attached to a cord with pang knot and wood bead. This ornament may have been pinned to a hat or used as a charm that was part of a larger ritual or ceremonial piece. 1.25 x 1 inch.

The monkey symbolizes cleverness in Chinese culture. The monkey is the ninth of the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac

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.
