In cloud form, this delightful amulet was probably presented to an infant to be worn at all times for sanctity and good luck. One side is carved with sprays of flowers (orchids?)and foliage, the other with characters for prosperity and happiness. In excellent condition, the jewel is approximately 2-1/2 inches by 3-1/8 inches. Circa 1820.
