Provenance

Formerly in the collection of the late Paul Walter; most probably acquired by Walter in London.

This spectacular, sculptural ‘C’-shaped bangle has been made in silver. It is of thick gauge silver but is hollow. The hoop is decorated with two bands of tiny spheres that are pieced all the way through. The ridge between the two bands is chased with a band of geometric motifs. The ends terminate with heavy, applied granulation work.

Traditionally, such bangles were worn by women in rural communities in Madhya Pradesh.

The bangle is stable and wearable.
