Banjara Head Rings (2)
From the Banjara of India, these are called ‘indhoni’ and are used on the head to balance a container(usually water). These are lovingly handmade, wrapped in cotton cloth and then sewn with beaded patterns. The larger one has 5 tassels attached which are also decorated with beads. Someone with small hands could wear them as bracelets, or include them in a bead collection, or use for fun home decor. These are vintage pieces- probably mid-20th century, and show some wear, but it does not detract. Sold as a pair.
Size: Large ring is 4 in across x 1.25 in. outside, inside is 2.25 in.; smaller ring is 3.75 x 1 in. outside, inside is 2.25 in.
