charm case

Base of amulet case made of copper alloy. A squared handle to either side and a loop for suspension at the top. Lining the base is a piece of paper in the shape of the box and painted with a robed figure, perhaps the Buddha, carrying a bowl in his left hand and a conch in the right.

This amulet is decorated with yidzhin norbu, the wish fulfilling jewel. It may well be quite old.
