An oval Thewa pendant from Rajasthan in northern India. Thewa is the technique invented around 400 years ago where filigree gold designs are fused onto a coloured glass ground, then backed with silver foil. This pendant depicts prey being attacked in what looks like a palace garden. The work is very fine and I have had to show the photographs oversize to show the detail. The pendant is missing its frame but still has a small card protector and the green silk backing.
Approximately 5.9 cm maximum dimension. There is a fine diagonal crack in the green glass ground. The pendant is safely secured within the silver border of the foil backing.
Please study the photographs.
