Vintage Sri Lanka Silver Necklace, Sinhalese Filigree Crescent Necklace, Chain, 56cm (22″), 59 Grams
This is most probably a vintage - to mid 20th century, silver necklace from Sri Lanka, (formerly Ceylon) and from the old capital city of Kandy in the island's central highlands.
The central focal crescent shaped section of this Sinhalese neckace is decorated with fine filigree, silver granulation and twisted silver wire.
It has fine braided silver rope chain extensions, 21 cm (8 1/4" ) each side and a decorated 'S' clip for closing, 3cm (1 1/8" ).
The necklace is in excellent used condition. I have cleaned the necklace slightly.
This type of Sri Lankan necklace is very hard to find today.
