Very Rare. 92.5% Silver Handicraft. 100% Himalayan Crystal. Turquoise and Coral Stones. Rinpoche. Offering Pot. Vessel. Nepal.
“Gulpa” in the Newari language of central Nepal is the word for a begging bowl. “Rinpoche” is a Tibetan term for precious one. Both terms help to describe these rare pots that are completely handmade and consist of high quality silverwork (92.5%), 100% Himalayan crystal and decorative gems.
Truly this is a work of art and almost impossible to find.
This pot belonged to a wealthy Newar Kathmandu family and they owned it for about 30 years. Before that it was used to offer rice grain to a single monk. Great history.
The detail is spectacular. PRICELESS, to say the least!
For the Serious Collector. Stand not included.
