This antique pure silver East Indian sash or belt ornament was made by P. P.Zaveri in Rajkot. We believe a correct term may be chabi ka guccha or kamar challa key chain worn at the waist of a saree/sari. (Spelling of any of these Hindi words has variations.)

It measures 4” high (hook alone is 1 1/8”) and about 1 1/8” wide.The eight-pointed sunburst in the center is engraved with two different alternating patterns on the copper color petals.

The waterside scene has aqua blue water with tiny waves, an island of brown with a silver house with copper roof and green door. A tall palm tree with brown trunk spreading green fronds. The teardrop element which swings below is also bright green. Both items have a clear glossy finish.

The back is stamped “P. P. ZAVERI, RAJKOT, 100T”. We have tested the item and tests as .999 pure silver. The ornament weighs approximately 18.3 grams and is in excellent condition.

Rajkot is the fourth-largest city in the state of Gujarat, India, and the location of the childhood home of Mahatma Mohanda Ghandi. Zaveri or Jhaveri is an Indian surname which originally was applied to jewelers and, in this case, the actual name of the jeweler who created this colorful piece.
