Old Chinese Talismen

Old Chinese Talismen

These turqwoise coloured talismen were brought back from China by my
Grandfather's brother in the early 20th century; could be much older.
They were worn round the neck of a baby, an adult and a bullock; maybe
they still are in certain parts of the ancient world.Down the centuries
there have been many talismen - even today.We travel and bring back
souvenirs - will our grandchildren look at these one day and wonder what
use they had? More information on http://www.annegiles-model.co.uk/talisman
