This spectacular anklets is from the Punjab area of what is now Pakistan. Possibly such anklets were worn at weddings. They are of hollow sheet silver and have been chased and repoussed and then decorated with green and dark blue enamel.
The anklets are hinged and open by means of a pull-out clip. The hoops are decorated on the outsides with rows of flowers coloured in alternating green and blue enamel. The interiors of the hoops are decorated with zig-zag and geometric bands.
The faces of the anklets are rectangular with large, raised flower finials.
The anklets have a marvellous patina from age and wear. There are losses to the enamel and one has a minor dent, but overall, this is a very showy and colourful pair.
