Fine antique Yemenite signed silver & coral bracelet

 

This is one of the very oldest and most successful designs of the antique Yemenite silver bracelets. Evolved and perfected through centuries by the indigenous Yemeni Jewish silver smiths, known as the masters of silver artistry in the whole 19 century Middle East.

It's intricately decorated with painstakingly individually applied rosettes, granulation, and diamond shaped elements, separated with finely granulated bands. It fastens with a perfectly functioning screw clasp, adorned with set genuine real and precious antique coral beads. It's a well worn bracelet yet in excellent shape with a soft comfortable inner side.

It was stamped with the maker's name as we read in the signature on the inner side of the bracelet ( pointed out in the pictures ) who most probably immigrated to Palestine in the early 1900's along with the majority of the Yemeni Jewish community, marking the end of this artistry heritage .
