A rare pair of Pashtun ear pendants, each consisting of a wire frame that has been skilfully wrapped in fabric at the back and at the bottom. The two wires at the front are exposed and each is set with three brass platelets. The wires are connected with metal struts which have been wrapped with small green and red glass beads. Clusters of copper bells have been attached at the bottom and a small white button has been sewn to the front of each pendant. Height: 10.5cm. Early twentieth century. North West Frontier Province.
