I obtain a few pieces of old jewelry from China that are simply wonderful and while I wanted to keep them, I know I can not keep even the best and most unique. From my research, including Four Centuries of Silver by Margaret Duda, a fabulous book for those interested, most are from the Q'ing Dynasty (1644-1911)., These silver lock pendants, collars or necklaces, were worn as a talisman to ward off evil spirits and to keep good fortune close.These were often given to newborns. The script and design on the locks are symbolic of good fortune – usually health and long life. The detail on the design was done by hand hammering the silver. I wish I could identify the writing and each side is different. This lock compared to many in the book is unusual because of the ornate tassels that hang down and it is heavy at 107 grams. The chain is 24 inches long and the lock is 2 1/2 inches at its widest and with the tassels it is 4 inches long. The patina is even and super and the condition is excellent.
