Silver Miao (Ethnic Minority)  "Torque" Necklace
$228.00

Large silver necklace belonging to the Chinese ethnic minority group the Miao. The "torque" necklace is embossed with various wildlife attesting to their animist beliefs. Composed of three large rings with a distinctive clasp, these torques were worn by women and men alike. When shook the necklace rattles due to something inside its hollow rings (this I believe is as its intended). Period: Early 20th century Dimension: Total Width 23.5cm Ring Thickness 2.5cm Provenance: Ex collection of Robert Cornell, Mass.
