Vintage Berber Tunisian Silver Snake Bracelet
This beautiful Berber snake bracelet is I believe Tunisian. It is locally called brim meaning wound up because it is made of twisted silver thick wire. The finials are two snakeheads that come together with a hook through which one of the ends can slide to enlarge the opening. The snake has a protective function in jewelry. The bracelet is not marked but tested with an acid scratch test and confirmed to be silver. The bracelet is rare and in good vintage condition.
