Silver cuff
8.25" (21 cm) interior circumference, 2.25" (5.8 cm) wide, 108 grams
Mid-20th century
Instead of the floral designs being chased by hand, the relief on this type of cuff was stamped when it was flat. The Libyan hallmark can be seen in the lower corner in the last two photos. This is a classic piece from Libya; for reference see World of Bracelets, 2002, Skira editore, Milano, page 29.
