This superb bracelet cast in silver has excellent sculptural value. It also has remarkable wear – its contours have been softened by age and handling. The interior too has so much wear that the silver in some sections has worn through.

It is likely to come from the Tihama region of Yemen.

It is a fine bracelet and very wearable.
