Old Silver Amulet Pendant from Northern India

Pendants shaped as horizontal tubes are hallmark amulets throughout Central Asia and the Subcontinent. 

The styles, shapes and designs vary from region to region, but the intent is the same -- to assure a safe and bountiful journey through this life by safe-keeping and strengthening the wearer's prayers, wishes and secrets in its hollow compartment.

This beautiful amulet pendant was handcrafted in high quality silver during the mid to early 1900's in Northern India. The skillful silverwork includes an open fretwork around the center and ornately embellished ends and clusters of tiny silver bell dangles. 

It hangs from simple contemporary black cord in traditional tribal fashion. It remains in excellent collectible and wearable condition.
