Stunning, coral-fringed, tribal pendant from Uzbekistan
Price for clients in the US: USD 125. Please see the shipping and payment details at the end of this product description.
Incredibally stunning and a fine specimen of tribal Uzbek jewellery. Fringed with coral and silver beads, this large pendant has a beautiful and finely detailed stamped motif, featuring stylized peacocks guarding the Tree of Life- a symbol of fertility. It has been lined with another silver sheet at the back, with a thin layer of wax/lac filling in between- for strength and to maintain the relief of the stamping.
We've strung this gorgeous piece of jewellery on a waxed cotton cord. A sliding Channapatna wooden lacquered bead allows one to play with the length.
Composition: ~ 80%- 90% Silver + coral.
Stamped: No visible markings.
Measurements: 8 cms long and 4.4 cms at the widest.
Weight: Approximately 16 gms for the pendant alone. Total weight with the cord is around 18.5 gms.
Age: mid 20th century.
Country of origin: Uzbekistan
Please note: (1) All the jewellery in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewellery.
(2) All the jewellery has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewellery is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewellery is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
