Antique Tibetan Silver Belt Plaque Ornament - 19th C
Rare Antique Tibetan Silver Belt Plaque with Snow Lion Design - 19th C
Our Price: £1,250.00

A stunning example of a Tibetan silver decorative belt plaque from U-Tsang, Tibet. They are particularly popular with the women from Shigatse, the second largest city in this region. Belt plaques were traditionally mounted on leather and a small purse made from leather may have been attached to the suspension hoop on the bottom. This piece is decorated with a dragon at each end and the central zone displays a double snow lion motif. They both flank a bejeweled wishfulfilling tree. It would be hard to find a nicer example.

Antique East Tibetan Ornamented Eating Set - 19th C
Antique East Tibetan Eating Utensil Set or Trousse - 19th C
Our Price: £795.00

A unique antique Tibetan eating set from Amdo in North East Tibet. Traditionally worn on a belt eating utensils were easily carried and always at hand. This set contains a sheathed knife for cutting meat and a pair of silver chopsticks. The leather sheath is ornamented with chased silver and strengthened with silver rings that are inlaid with genuine red coral and turquoise bead cabachons. Comparable sets (but probably less ornate) were also popular with the equestrian cultures of North China and Mongolia.

The large coral and tuquoise cabachons, in addition to the silver, make this a visually stunning item. These sets were also prized as objects for personal adornment and were therefore viewed as items of jewellery. This meant that the most ornate sets were often an indication of wealth and status within the community.

Two Antique Tibetan Gaus or Reliquary Amulets with Lama Statue
Two Antique Tibetan Gaus or Reliquary Amulets with Lama Statue
Our Price: £450.00

This is a very interesting pair of antique gaus from Tibet. They are strung on a wide braided cotton cord to allow them to be worn comfortably across the body. They were aquired together in this way and have been left in their original found condition. The largest gau is crafted from copper and is decorated with Auspcious Symbols and has a viewing window. Inside the gau is a wooden votive statue that shows signs of considerable age (believed to be much older than the gau). The Lama sits in full lotus posture and holds a skull cup in his left hand and there are faint traces of red paint on his robes. His right arm has long since been lost and perhaps once held a Vajra or was in the mudra of teaching. The base of the statue has been sealed with pitch, so it has clearly been consecrated and most likely filled with a roll of mantras.The round gau has a copper back and has a silver filigree front and is inlaid with blue glass to substitute turquoise. Inside is contained a printed page of a sadhana in Tibetan script.

Origin: Tibet
Age of gaus 19th C (The wooden votive statue is believed to be much earlier)

Rare Antique Bamboo Bracelet Ornamented with Silver - Animal-Style
Rare Antique Bamboo Bracelet Ornamented with Silver - Animal-Style
Our Price: £425.00

A great looking antique Tibetan bamboo bracelet. The bamboo has been skillfully shaped and ornamented with silver. The silver has been heavily rubbed from being worn on the body and there is some loss. Despite this the bracelet still remains robust and very suitable to be worn. It is hard to make out the complete design on the silver, however, two stylised bats can be seen at each end. The bat was a symbol of good fortune and happiness. Two bats facing each other was believed to bring double the hapiness to the wearer. The only comparable bracelets we have seen came from an area sacred to Yeshe Tsogyal (the principle heart student of Guru Rinpoche) and they were sought after and worn as amulets because of their connection to her. Whether this one came from the same region is unknown. What is clear is that it was worn and cherished for many years and the patina is testament to this.
