Vintage Coin Silver Copper Tibetan Ghau Prayer Box
Not all Ghau prayer boxes from Tibet are created equal. The craftsmanship does vary quite a bit. This one has been made by a master in metal work and very well crafted. Coin silver front, copper sides and back. It is in a brocade case with a strap so it can be worn around the neck. It has a black clay Buddha in the window. It has auspicious symbols and a lion face on the front. It is about 3 1/2" X 2 7/8" and 1 1/4" deep. Neck strap is about 3.5 feet long. A stunning piece. Most of these you find on the market today are not antique, this one is vintage not antique. Opens from back to insert prayer or amulet.
