This pair of silver dangling earrings is of a type worn by several minority groups in southern China, principally the Miao (who are known as the Hmong in Southeast Asia) and various ‘Hill Tribe’ groups such as the Lisu, Lahui and Akha in the Golden Triangle area of northern Thailand and its neighbours.
Each comprises a silver loop/hook from which a tiered, silver wire flower-form element is suspended. Numerous long silver dangles are suspended from each of these. A further silver wire flower element is attached to the front of each earring.
See Nadler (2005, p. 342) for a near-identical pair, and Lewis (1984, p. 61).
The examples here are in fine condition and show age and wear.
