Vintage Silver Yemeni Anklet or Foot Bracelet
This is an old Yemeni anklet. A similar anklet is shown in Marjorie Ransom's book on Yemeni jewelry. She credits the origin of this anklet in Wadi Da'wan, Yemen. There is extensive stamping work all over the the anklet and there is a trapped pebble that makes it rattle slightly.
This anklet has a screw type closure and is in very good vintage condition. There is just a small indentation, hardly noticeable. A rare find indeed.
I have a very similar anklet in the shop that was made in Egypt and won by Nubian and Rashaida women. http://www.anteeka.com/product/unique-vintage-silver-nubian-anklet-made-egypt
