Neck Collar from Delhi, India

This also comes from Delhi, India and matches the previous horse blanket except that it is decorated with doves designed with lines of pearls. In each section is a tree of life with a resplendent jeweled flower at the top. It is set on red velvet with leather backing. The sequins and mirrors are much the same as the above. This neck decoration is in poor condition and is in the process of being restored.
