No maker's name or hallmarks, so I have no clue where they came from. The degree of tarnish suggests they're decades old, and I'm guessing from India. Looks like a multi-armed goddess who is holding what may be flowers in her upraised arms.
The backplate, chain and post didn't respond as well to the polishing cloth, so I'm also guessing this is silver mounted on some kind of base metal.
Anyone with more of a clue as to what this is, feel free to let me know.
EDIT. A quick Google tells me this is the goddess Lakshmi, seated on a lotus blossom and holding a lotus flower in each of her upraised hands.
