Antique Tibetan Gau Inlaid with Turquoise

Sold out

A fine looking antique gau with raised floral motif and turquoise inlay. There is minor weathering from being worn and handled which is to be expected from a piece of this age. The gau itself has been sealed long ago and so the contents inside the gau remain unknown. This also means the back cannot easily be removed and so it is being sold as 'sealed shut'. The actual gau front is crafted from silver and then gilded with real gold. The back is crafted from brass.

Origin: Tibet /Himalayan
Late 19th/Early 20th Century
Collected in India in the 1970s.
Condition: Very Good with minor weathering commensurate with age.
Material: Brass, Silver, Gold.
52 mm (height) x 38 mm (width) x 19 mm (depth)
