Provenance

UK art market

This fine, sculptural, thickly-walled silver cuff bracelet comprises three bands of points designed to reflect the prickly plants found in the desert.

Hoek (2004, p. 53) illustrates similar examples, as does Rajab (1998, p. 57).

The example here is in excellent condition with a lovely patina. Its contours have been softened by age and wear.
