These two bracelets are of brass and are of similar dimensions. Both have solid, trumpet-shaped terminals that overlap and have faceted bodies. One is engraved with spiral motifs around the terminals; the other is plain.
Similar examples are illustrated in Barbier (1984, p. 69) and Jacobs (1990, p. 262) who says examples with trumpet-shaped ends were made in Manipur, a state in north-eastern India, bounded by the Indian states of Nagaland, Mizoram, and Assam.
The two are in excellent condition.
