A stunning pair of finely modelled golden earrings from the ancient region of Bactria. Composed of triangular shaped clusters of golden granules, these earrings showcase the gold working technique excellently, with both the reverse finished to a high standard, and the lowest row of granules adorned with a miniature pyramidal cluster version of the art form. At the top of the earrings, a loop for wearing terminating in a single gold granule, and two round bezels, which may have originally featured semi-precious stones or glass paste inlays. A highly wearable set of elegant ancient earrings. Weight: 7.15 g.
