Indian, Marbled Glass Bangle.

An old layered glass bangle fom India, with an outer layer of opaque red, blue and white glass marbling.

This is laid onto a translucent amber glass base then whilst still hot has been cut and wrapped to form a bangle.

This bangle has a small gap where the two ends meet (see images). 

There is a long tradition of "lac" bangle manufacture in India and fine glass ones are common, but these two (we have a pair, see GB101) are the only ones I've seen of this kind.

It is in a fine condition and seems to have some age, but as I have nothing to compare it with, so I'm only guessing.

We found them in Pakistan late last century, therefore I'm assuming they maybe old enough to be considered Indian, either way.

Age: Early/Mid 20th Century.

Size: Diameter mm x  W 9 mm.

Weight: 112 grams.
