19th C. Tibetan Skeleton Iron Cup Set embossed Gold and Silver. 3 cup container with double dorje on the top. I have seen only 2 before and I bought them both.

A double dorje is the family symbol of Amogasiddhi (one of the 5 Dhyani Buddhas), relative to ones karma. Buddha Amogasiddhi "Conqueror" has the consort Green Tara. Fearless is his gesture, his vehicle is Garuda.
The ten prongs together symbolise the ten perfections the 'ten grounds' or progressive levels of realisation of a bodhisattva; and the ten directions.
