Description

This is one of an almost IDENTICAL pair – only on very close examination, because they are hand hade, can you tell the difference in swirls and dots. Definitely not machine made! These date to the late 1800?۪s to early 1900s.

PRICE IS FOR ONE.

This beautiful, old, original solid silver cuff is from the OLOMI people of Turkmenistan. It is hand made an delicately incised with a floral pattern. The silver is flexible enough to fit over any wrist, yet is snug enough not to fall off. A wonderful statement piece, and as these are getting more difficult to acquire, a collectible piece of old silver. Probably 80 years or more.

All my pieces have little dings or dents, testament to their journeys and travels across landscapes and families. This adds to their charm. All are slightly different, ditto. Nothing is mass produced, mass imported, or sold in bulk – one offs, every time.

I haven?۪t cleaned these much, apart from a soapy rinse, but if you like, they can be cleaned to a lovely soft patina.
