This fine pair of solid-cast bronze anklets would have been worn by a woman, possibly of the Kond community of Andhra Pradesh and Orissa.
Of elliptical design and raised at each end, they also have sections of chiselled vertical bands.
The pair are sculptural, decorative and in excellent condition.
