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.
