A Very Rare Silver Buddha Secret Compartment Charm Pendant
A very rare Buddha charm with a secret compartment to hold dice.
This is a very special charm that doesn't show up often, especially complete with it's dice.
The charm was not tested for sterling, so I am calling it Silver, but due to its rarity, it is quite valuable.
The bottom of the charm has a small ball that allows you to slide the bottom open. That is where the dice are kept. This one came with 5 dice which is quite unusual as they were mostly lost over time.
Weight, 4.4 grams
Size, with jump ring, 1 " long x 1/2" wide
Hallmarks, (S) on bottom. On other researched examples the (S) may stand for special.
I have not cleaned this charm so you are seeing lots of patina.
