Lot Essay

Archer’s rings made of precious and semi-precious stones are well documented in Mughal India. In the Windsor Padshanameh dating from the first half of the 17th century, for example, Jahangir can be seen with a pair of archer’s rings suspended from his belt, one of which is colored cream and orange and could easily be made of similar stone (see, Beach, Koch and Thackston, 1997, pp.36-37, figs.8-9).
