Vintage Metal Bedouin Bracelet or Bangle from Yemen
A nice Yemeni bangle made of mixed metals and decorated with roping and applique disks in alternating smooth and textured pattern. The bracelet is made of metal sheeting, so the bracelet is hollow, but still substantial. There are a few dents, repairs and a hole on its inside, but despite its battering over time, it retains its dignity and beauty. It has a pebble trapped inside so it acts as a soft rattle.
Inner circumference is 20 cm (7 7/8"). Inner diameter is 6.5 cm (2 5/8"). Width is 2 cm (3/4"). Weight is 120 grams
