Old Tribal Jewelry - Vintage Necklace from Kashmir


This colorful old Necklace was handcrafted in Kashmir during the early to mid-1900's for the nomadic Kuchi tribe of Central Asia. The large leaf-shaped central pendant is a traditional motif in Kashmir. It lots of colorful beads set in raised bezels and traditional incised patterns. 

The side chains are classically Kashmiri with their repeating floral links and dangles. 2 tumar amulets flank the sides - hollow containers for holding secrets, prayers, and wishes. They opened at one time, and perhaps still do, but they are snugly closed now.

A warm age patina has been somewhat polished away to reveal the luster below, but enough remains in the crevices to add a wonderful sheen that only the passage of time can create.
