This fine, hinged bracelet is from Andhra Pradesh. The central, engraved and raised lotus motif is surrounded by four sacred yali faces from which spring pierced sprays of leaves and flowers.
The band is hinged and opens with a long screw mechanism which turns anti-clockwise to close. The band is engraved with bands of ropework to emulate a multi-link band.
A related, less refined example is illustrated in van Cutsem (2002, p. 201) and another is in Untracht ( 1997, p. 253).
The example here has a fine patina and plenty of signs of age. It is robust and stable. It would fit a lady with a small wrist.
