Unique Vintage Silver Indian Lotus Flower Bracelet or Bangle
A lovely and unusual bracelet from the late 19th century or early 20th century. It is made of high grade silver and is hinged. It has handmade punch marks and the push pin closure is disguised with a towering lotus flower dome. According to Anne van Custem's book A World of Bracelets, this beauty is from Rajasthan, India. However I do not rule out Pakistan or Afghanistan as its origin.
Inner circumference is 20 cm (7 3/4"). Inner diameter is 6.3 cm (just short of 6 1/2"). Width is 1.1 cm (about 1/2"). Weight is 45 g.
