Flat ethnic torque with geometrical pattern
19th – 20th siècle
D. 20 cm / 258 g
This superb jewel is very modern. Made of silver, it comes from South-East Asia in the mountains where the Miao, also called Hmong, Yao and Akha ethnic groups live. It has delicate geometric patterns that are the result of hammering and chiselling the material. Its ends are spiral and allowed the passing of a chain to hold and close the necklace.
This piece is in very good condition.
