Her beads still being here in Montana were of no use to them anymore. He needed to unload the collection, amongst other things, and get back to her side. He was a great old gentleman with a worldly outlook and as much wisdom as intent behind his eyes.His wife he said, was an avid bead enthusiast and collected beads of all sorts in her exciting World travels, nearly 70 years ago now. It turned out to be a full room of treasure boxes from all over the world. Functioning art and Cultural pieces. Her Tibet and China and Japan collections were several boxes. Among the most interesting items were this individual very rare Hat Amulets I pulled from her Tibet box. They appear to be antique silver.... Not 100%, but most I have seen are. At any rate the details are exquisite... THESE AMULETS WERE SEWN TO HATS, WORN TO BESTOW GOOD LUCK FOR THE OWNER. IN CHINESE MYTHOLOGY, THE EIGHT IMMORTALS ARE BELIEVED TO KNOW THE SECRETS OF NATURE. THEY REPRESENT SEPARATELY MALE, FEMALE, THE OLD, THE YOUNG, THE RICH, THE NOBLE, THE POOR, AND THE HUMBLE CHINESE. EACH IMMORTAL'S POWER CAN BE TRANSFERRED TO A TOOL OF POWER, KIND OF A TALISMAN ASSOCIATED WITH A CERTAIN MEANING, THAT CAN GIVE LIFE OR DESTROY EVIL. THE AMULETS ARE HOLLOW AND CONE-SHAPED, WITH HOLES DRILLED INTO THE SIDES AND BASE SO THAT THEY COULD BE STITCHED ONTO GARMENTS.
