Bracelets or bangles such as this pair are relatively uncommon. Few have been published. They were worn by the Pasthun people (also known as Pathans) of what is today Pakistan, and also Afghanistan.
Of flattened ‘C’ form, they are heavy for their size, and are made from thick sheet silver with applied silver plaques and other decorative elements. Each also has two red and one green glass cabochons in box settings.
