This contented-faced antique Chinese Buddha was made to sit atop a hat. These were usually put on top of children's hats but this one is a bit bigger and might have been for an older child or adult's hat.

These silver (tests 800) ornaments were thought to bring protection and good luck to the wearer. This figural ornament measures 2 3/8 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high. The inside is hollow and cone-shaped. The inside measures 2 1/4 inches deep by 3/4 inch wide at the head...ample room for fabric. It weighs 13.1 grams.

On both front and back, there are two sets of two holes along the edges for attaching to fabric. This could also be turned into a pendant for a necklace.

This Buddha of good fortune has his original antique patina...we haven't polished it. It's old and original...in excellent condition. Circa 1900.

This antique hat ornament (and others like it) can be seen in the book 'Four Centuries of Silver - Personal Adornment in the Qing Dynasty and After' - by Margaret Duda - page 133.
