    This fine, elegant silver bracelet is hinged and opens with a small screw mechanism. It comprises two thickly-walled but probably hollow silver tubes that are joined and decorated with two equi-distant fields of applied granulation and wire work in triangle and flower motifs.

    The triangular granulation work is typical of a type of jewellery that was produced in Sri Lanka. Related examples are illustrated in Geoffroy-Schneiter (2011, p. 114).

    The bracelet is well made. It is in an excellent and wearable condition. It has a pleasing patina, a good colour and obvious age.
