Matching Pair of Quality Vintage Silver Saharan 'Mizam' Bracelets from Morocco - RARE
A matching pair of authentic vintage silver (tested) bracelets—mizam—from Guelmim, Morocco, made by artisans circa 1950. These stunning hinged bracelets are chunky with a beautiful traditional design, tribal markings and raised granulation. This pair of bracelets are very high quality, having extra panels of etched silver onto which the pois chiches beads are attached. Worn traditionally by Saharwi Guedra dancers. It's rare to find a matching pair still together after all these years. Absolutely beautiful and very collectible or even wearable.
