Silver Bracelet
Yemen, probably Wadi Daw’an
early 20th century

inside diameter 6cm, exterior diameter: 7.8cm,  weight: 66g

This bracelet of high-grade silver is hollow (but still heavy for its size) and is decorated on the exterior with a fish scale pattern. The edges are decorated with
a fine border of twisted silver wire.

Ramson (2014, p. 163) illustrates a pair of hinged silver bracelets that have a similar scale-like decoration.

The example here is in fine, wearable condition. It has obvious patina and age.
