This hand crafted piece of tribal art is from the Miao, one of China’s 55 ethnic groups.  Miao are known for elaborate embroidery and exquisite work in silver.


Miao silver is an alloy of copper, cobalt, nickel and trace metals.  Silver content for the variety of products created by the Miao people varies from 2%, on up.


The value of Miao items is really in the craftsmanship, not in the silver content.
