Pair of Indian Silver ‘Mulberry’ Anklets/Bracelets

Western India
circa 1900

external diameter: 9.7cm, height or thickness: 4.5cm, combined weight: 605g



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

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.
