Very early example of silver jewelry from Multan region / Pakistan
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.
Estimated to be from the mid 1800s or earlier
