Sikh Quoit

A GOLD AND SILVER-DAMASCENED STEEL QUOIT (CHAKRAM) DEPICTING THE SIKH GURUS, Sialkot, 19th Century. Private collection Sold by Southebys. 

The numerous Sikh artefacts in the UK numbers in the thousands. It is the aim of the SMI to start collecting detailed information on these artefacts so that a detailed picture can be made of how they made their way to the UK.

Whilst most were taken during and after the Anglo-Sikh Wars, some were actually gifted by Sikh chiefs and custodians.

This is a long term aim of the SMI.
