Finely Carved Floral Silver Bangle From India (#18-012)


This lovely tribal silver bracelet from India is deeply and finely carved on it’s front with flowers and leaves, and terminates in floral buds, perhaps representing lotus buds. it is unmarked, as is typical of most tribal jewelry, but of high silver content. It is of hollow construction but quite heavy for a hollow piece. As the gap is quite small, it will be for a small sized wrist. The deep almost three dimensional carving is of exceptional quality, giving it a beauty that is difficult to convey in photographs. The quality of the piece suggests to me that it is quite old, but there is little if any wear, making it a difficult piece to date.
