Antique Moroccan Silver Temporal Adornment - Rare
Large rare antique temporal 'earrings' from the western Anti-Atlas region of Morocco. They consist of large hollow silver rings with attached enamelled plates and dangles. The silver rings are ornately decorated, the enamelling in traditional colours, and the dangles are embellished with branch coral, silver beads and French and Spanish coins.
The temporals are connected with a chain which would tie with the attached hook to a woman’s veil, allowing the temporals to hang as 'earrings' either side of the head. These temporals are in very good condition for their age and very collectible.
