Pair of Indian Silver Anklets

Rajasthan or Maharashtra, India
circa 1900

approximate diameter of each: 10cm, height: 4.3cm, combined weight: 866g



Collection of the late Paul Walter, New York, probably acquired in London.

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.

Related examples are illustrated in van Cutsem (2002, p. 184).

They are in excellent condition.
