Very early example of silver jewelry from Multan region / Pakistan strung on Rudraksh beads.
Although all enamelled pieces from Multan are rare, most are rectangular and ones in this shape are impossible to find.
Very well done blue and green enamel work.
The silver plate is thick - one more unusual feature.
The bells all have a cheerful tinkle but the remarkable ones are the 5 hanging at the centre. The shape is extremely unusual and rare and is one of the important aspects of this piece.
Age unknown but estimated to be 50-60 years old
The burnt-orange of the Rudraksh beads offersa superb contrast.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user.Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections.Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
