Large Antique Chinese Qing Dynasty Symbolic Double-sided Silver Baby Boy Amulet:
$48


Large antique Chinese Qing Dynasty symbolic silver baby boy amulet. This astonishing double-sided piece would have been worn to guarantee the safe birth of a son. The child has his hands together in prayer and is anatomically correct. It is 2 3/4 inches long, 1 inch at its widest, and 1/2 inch at its thickest. It has a rattle in it, so the amulet also makes noise.

This amulet isamong a group of pieces representing the finest Chinese silver work from the Qing Dynasty. When the Communists came in, all jewelry and artifacts were confiscated from the citizenry by the government and stored in warehouses. In the 1970's, the government started selling the stock to select dealers. This piece and others were purchased 35 years ago from some of the first traders who were allowed to buythis precious work.

I travel frequently between San Francisco and Amsterdam, Netherlands, so item will be sent from wherever I am when the sale closes. Nevertheless, the shipping cost is the same. It will take about 2 weeks after payment is received for item to arrive if it's sent from Amsterdam. For deliveries to China and France, due to so many lost or stolen packages, the shipping cost will be $20, which includes track and trace. This price is less than my cost. If this is not acceptable, please refrain from offerding. And if you do offer and win, please don't leave negative response about the delivery time and cost.
