Pair of Silver Anklets
Rajasthan or Maharashtra, India
approximate diameter of each: 10cm, height: 4.3cm, combined weight: 866g
This dramatic pair of heavy anklets is made from thick silver wire arrayed in a chain-like fashion, although they have very little flexibility. The sides are tapering
and they are opened by pulling out a pin that secures the two ends together.
