Aoi Leaf Earrings with Lapis, sterling

This jewelry design, a water plant, was adapted from the gold maki-e (sprinkled fine gold particles) on a Japanese wedding palanquin in the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery (S1985.1). A palanquin is a covered vehicle in which a single passenger is carried by one or more bearers. Palanquins were used for long-distance travel and special ceremonies, such as weddings. This palanquin dates to the Edo period; early 19th century.
