This is a very unusual piece of jewelry from India depicting a silver tiger in the jungle. Although I have some jewelry made of tiger claw in my hands both in silver and in gold I have never seen such a strange single copy.
Put in silver decorated with a small walking tiger on it as seen in phot0 4. The dimensions are 3 x 3.5 cm and the weight is 13 gr.
I can not find any marks but tested silver.
Given the hinge and the C-clasp I date it the 19th century. But perhaps even older.
I would like to hear from you what you think of this dating and please an answer if you have seen such a jewel made of tiger nail before? I appreciate your vision!
