Jewels before clothes. An unusual cdv of a very young Indian boy wearing jewellery


The slightly puzzled looking young boy sits on an adjustable chair in an unidentified photographer’s studio. He is naked apart from a considerable amount of jewellery, including armbands, bracelets, anklets, necklace, and earrings. The card gives no indication of origin and came to us in an old collection of portraits of Indian princes. The gold jewellery certainly suggests the well fed looking boy came from a wealthy family. Perhaps someone will recognise jewellery or at least its style.      jul14/1
