Each of this fine pair of either anklets or bracelets has a cushion-like form, but the sides are pierced and have been constructed by the careful soldering together of hundreds of tiny silver spheres.
The anklets are hinged and where the two halves come together, the sides are decorated with leafy motifs which are akin to the serrated leaves of the mulberry tree. To complete the imagery, the tops of the anklets have mulberry-like pyramid protuberances
The anklets are in excellent condition.
