Item details

This ancient tikka from Madhya Pradesh is particulraly wonderful.
It used to be 22K gold plated. At least the lower half of it. There are remnants of this plating on the piece.

The silver surfaces and copper have both an excpetional glowing smooth patina.

Weight 14.15 grams
Circumference 6.4 cm

Tikkas were and still are in tribal areas of Central North Western India, part of the wedding dowry. Married women wear them at the very top of the forehead. It is part of their head gear, and attached to it.

It will make a wonderful pendant worn on a chain or silk ribbon.

PierreCachee is at this time shipping from India, everywhere, with tracking number.

Usual estimated delivery time is:
...to USA around 10 to 21 days.
...to Europe around 8 to 20 days
These estimations are usually accurate.
Sometimes delivery is made faster than this. It can go the other way around also.
Though it happens rarely, customs can retain an item for some time before releasing. I cannot control this neither be accountable for the delays thus incurred.

There are a few countries now, essentially USA and Canada, whose postal services do not update online anymore the initial tracking once item has left India.
Buyers from North America who wish tracking online all way thru have the option of SpeedPost EMS. In case this option is chosen, please provide your phone number in " note to seller".
Tracking can still be done at your local P.O.

Tracking online thru EU and UK works all the way to destination in any case.
In case UK buyers would neverthless wish for SpeedPost, please note this option is more costly for them from India ( not my doing...) and they should choose then the UK SpeedPost option

Buyers are responsible for any and all duties, customs taxes and charges that may be incurred.
EU is susceptible to charge VAT on items coming from abroad. Contact me for more on the topic.

I sell vintage and more particularly ethnic tribal items. Some pieces quite ancient.

They may have " imperfections", bear marks of useage, wear, and time; of local craftmanship in the case of ethnic tribal.

Rural and small towns craftmen worked with non-industrial means. Their goal was not to match the idea of perfection we currently hold.

Please check the photos, zoom, ask.

Those pieces are now rare. Precious. I love them and will be happy to answer your queries.

I pack everything securely and am as concerned as you are about your item reaching you in its original shape.
It is your responsability though to provide a valid mailing adress and collect your goods swiftly when notices to pick up at P.O. are left.

If for some reason, item arrives damaged, please contact me right away after delivery, with clear photos.

I measure the rings with a professional mandrel.
You are responsible for knowing your fingers sizes.
I now provide photos of the ring on the mandrel in the listing. If it is not there, feel free to ask me for one. Before purchase.

Thank you for your time and visit!
