Antique Indian Amulet, Rajasthan
This is a heavy at 63 grams for the vintage high grade silver amulet pendant from Rajasthan, Northern India. A sacred and powerful charm, it is believed to offer the wearer protection.
The amulet is in the shape of a square, the form symbolic of a house plan, a symbol of family unity, represented by a walled-in rectangle. The amulet uses stamped floral units to cover joins. It has two decorative bales, a silver silver border added.
There are four set of clam shell dangles that jingle with movement.
The amulet has been strung on a new black Indian traditional handmade cotton thread cord with a sliding bead to adjust the length to of wear.
This is an original collection piece in good condition. I have cleaned the amulet slightly to highlight the beautiful details of the workmanship.
