Project Description

Old Hill tribe Dong earrings, SW China

Ethnic earrings from the Dong people, living in Guizhou, South China.

From the beginning to mid 20th century.

Fine filigree work and high-quality silver, with a wonderful patina. The earrings were filled at some point with wool for decoration.

In a fairly good state, just one of the small silver balls is missing.

They are 6 cm long (2,36 in) and they both weigh 28 gr.
