Quirky and eclectic collection of 35 small repousse auspicious good luck tokens.) These were collected in Dali, Yunnan, China in the late 1980s. No two are exactly alike and they seem to be influenced by Tantric Buddhism in that the endless knot, parasol, lotus throne, and temple banner motifs are represented in this lot as well as more traditional Chinese symbols such as bats and butterflies. In the last image I have shown a Qilin the only image in this group that has a hallmark. Scale is enlargements. The symbols are typically Mongolian in origin which points to these being from Yuxi Xingmeng, the last ethnic Mongolian village in Yunnan. It should be noted that the Mongolian Empire conquered Yunnan in 1253CE. I can comfortably date these to Qing Dynasty. Free shipping.
