VIntage Indian Silver Ganesh Amulet with Snake Chain - image 1 of 10

This beautiful hand made antique heavy silver amulet is of the elephant god Ganesh and the goddess Parvati, his mother. This sacred amulet is believed to protect the wearer. It is early 20th century and was worn by the tribal people in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan. The hand stamped design is raised and the border has a raised design. The bales also have a raised floral design. The stamped design also shows on the back of the piece. The pendant and chain are in excellent condition.

It is hung on an antique Indian silver snake chain that is 26” around with a hook closure.

Ganesh is the Indian God of wisdom, is the most honored of all deities. He is the eldest son of of Shiva and Parvati.

Hindu's believe in only one God but in many manifestations. This elephant-headed God is the "Remover of Obstacles', as well as the God of Auspicious Beginnings and Blessings.

I have obtained most of my Indian silver pieces from an expert on antique Indian silver who travels in India and Tibet and has written books on the silver pieces he finds. His museum quality pieces are sought after both by museums in Europe as well as the United States. Many of the silver pieces, like this piece, are parts of older jewelry or ceremonial pieces. These pieces were hand made and are of designs that had significance to the silversmith.

This wonderful collect’s item is in great condition.
