Old Ethnic Silver Yemeni Armlet.

Written on September 3rd, 2013 by verono shouts




















Gorgeous Ethnic silver piece from the North Yemen.

This beautiful armlet has been made in the North of Yemen, by jewish jewellers. I personally sourced this piece in Sanaa,  capital of Yemen.

Exquisite engraved work with vegetal designs, traditionally present in all Yemeni Jewish pieces.
I dont clean the patina on my pieces, but I got this one just as you can see it now, shiny showing the excellent quality of the silver.
Silver in Yemen was mainly obtained by melting Maria Theresia Thalers, the silver coin used for trade in the Levante route, in XVIII century. Yemen traded coffe beans with Italy, Austria, from Mokha port and received red Mediterranean coral and Maria Theresia silver thalers.
All the jewels created for wedding celebrations were made meltings these coins.

Rare piece, excellent quality of workmanship.

The bracelet has a little hit on the internal circle. See pictures please.

Measures are: Weight 65 grms.
Widht: 2,5 cm.
Inner diam. 7 cm/ 3 inches.

Price is 290 euros.
