CLARKE & CLARKE Art + Artifacts
|A very unusual pair of beaded, silver metal and carnelian colored glass epaulets. Undoubtly the design of a tribal craftsman after seeing a Turkish or European military officer. The beading is in traditional colors and vaguely suggests the tree of life. The large carnelian colored glass is very much a part of the Turkmen jewelry tradition. In excellent condition with only one of the dangles missing. Presented on a custom display, from which they are easliy removed, designed by the former Santa Fe collector where they resided for the last 12 years. The epaulets are 5"x7" and the display is 12"x12". 1960's era|
