Moroccan Silver Bracelet with Knobs, Vintage Berber Jewelry
A pretty Moroccan silver bracelet with knobs. This type of bracelet was worn by women in Central and Western Anti-Atlas. You can see a similar example in Ann van Cutsem's A World of Bracelets. It's from the first part of the 20th Century.
The bracelet is made of silver and is decorated with green and yellow enamel, but a lot of it has deteriorated with age. There are eight knobs on the bracelet. One of them has been replaced. You can see the repair in the last picture. Apart from these defaux the bracelet is in good vintage condition.
