Asymmetrical Stiff Wrist Torque or Bangle from Western India probably Gujarat
Unique opening / closing mechanism that is an engineering feat!
The shape is not circular and the lobe has a larger radius on the outer side.
The shape resembles the Rising Sun and hence is loosely termed “Surya Kada”
Fastened with a screw.
High Impact – conversation piece.

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
