Antique Qing dynasty hollow repoussé coin-silver ornament and carved wood double-fishes amulet with coral beads. Attached with cord to carnelian bead and pang knot.This type of ornament would have been part of a larger ritual or ceremonial piece during the dynasty period. Total length from top of knot  to small silver charm at the bottom is 3-7/8"

Double fishes represent unity, marriage and abundance not only in food provisions but also in children and family in general. It is worn as a protective amulet
.
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.
