Description

Hammered silver with surface decoration. There is a hinge and a clasp which consists of 3 sleeves; the connecting pin is missing. The surface decoration consists of parallel bands of small beading and looped wirework. Large silver beads and flat square plaques are surrounded by wire looped into flower designs. This bracelet almost certainly matches the necklace numbered 87-13-109.
