Large Antique Tibetan Pendant Lord Vishnu Coral & Turquoise


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is an antique Tibetan pendant that depicts Lord Vishnu.  This antique Tibetan pendant is inlaid with coral and turquoise and some green and brown stones that I’m unsure of.  I think that the pendant is possibly made of low grade silver.  It is quite large, measuring 3 1/8” by 2 5/8” - it weighs 55 grams (about 2 oz).  It is missing a number of surrounding stones, but the figure of Lord Vishnu is intact - please look at the photo.  The piece might benefit from a bit of a clean-up, but it looks fine under normal viewing.

I would think that this antique Tibetan pendant dates to the 19th century - it is an impressive example!
