Beautiful scrolls of niello work, this is some of the finest niello from the Soutern Berber regions and on this type of bracelet. It is an older example and has had one decorative panel at the back replaced, the original is the undulating line, which was once enamelled. There is also a repair to the front where there is a slight split which has been soldered at the back. Often these jewels are repaired by local jewellers with parts of other similar pieces. Diameter 5.5 cms. Slightly adjustable, height from 3cms to 6cms.
