Bracelet with Miniature Portraits

India (Delhi), Mughal/British Raj, c. 1860 - 1870

Watercolors on ivory and gold

The six segments of this bracelet feature miniature portraits of three Mughal emperors and their consorts. Indian artists adopted the technique of painting portrait miniatures on ivory with watercolors from British artists living and working in India during the 19th century. This delicate bracelet is, therefore, an interesting example of the cultural exchange between East and West during the period of European imperialism.
