Very good condition, there is no restoration

Pair of gilt-brass jeweled peacock (Mayura) ornaments paved with a mosaic of inset turquoises, corals, lapis lazulis, rubies and emeralds.
Dangling on the bottom are small pipal leaves.
These were statue decorations attached by the two rings on the back, probably to an image in a private temple belonging to a Nepalese noble family. The Hindu-Buddhist Nepalese regard the peacock as a harbinger of good fortune and wealth.
This intricate work is a fine example of the high mastery of Newar jewelers.
Size: 14,5 x 15,5cm
Provenance:
They were purchased in Patan in November 2016 from Mr. Manisch Surendra Sakya, an elderly man from a royal Rana family.
Kathmandu Valley, Nepal

5 ¾” (14.5 cm.) high X 6 ⅛” (15.5 cm.) high.
Weight of each: 312.4 grams.

Circa 1950s. 20th century

Please see a very similar 17th-18th century Nepalese ornament in the National Museum of Scotland collection.

    Vente d'un objet cassé sans que cela ne soit indiqué dans la description. Il faut avoir la saya (foureau) et regarder les photos publiées pour le savoir.

    Je suis désolé si le ton était un peu grossier. Maintenant que j'ai vu les photos Je suis au courant du problème, je ne contrôle pas directement sur les objets, mon collaborateur doit avoir été mal collés et sans m'avisant des problèmes qui s'est produite. Certes, je comprends son ressentiment. Que puis-je faire pour résoudre ce qui s'est passé ? Cordialement
