Old Afghan Silver Torc (Torque) Necklace from the Kashmir Valle

This beautiful old Afghan Torc necklace was skillfully handcrafted during the early to mid-1900's in the Kashmir Valley. The silverwork is impeccable, with intricate designs and details. Mild wear patterns and a subtle age patina remain from decades of time.
Hinges on the sides allow for the necklace to easily open and slide onto the neck, then close again. The back has a hook on each side for tying a ribbon or cord and securing the necklace in place.

This is a one-of-a-kind, sturdy piece of silver Afghan tribal jewelry in excellent collectible condition.
