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

    This unusual bracelet comprises many silver spiky units each of which is said to represent rats’ teeth.

    Each segment has been strung on black cotton cord.

    It opens with a screw mechanism which turns clockwise to open.

    A related example is illustrated in Untracht (1997, p. 258) who attributes it to Uttar Pradesh.

    The example here is in excellent condition.
