This fine bracelet or bangle is of thick, hammered sheet silver with applied pearled and plaited silver wirework It has plain, hemi-spherical finals.

It is most probably from Gujarat and likely to date to the 19th century.

A similar example is illustrated in van Cutsem (2002, p. 205).

The silver is high-grade and has a fine patina. There is light dimpling associated with age and wear, but overall is in fine condition.
