Antique Shan Silver Bracelet ETJ42

$995.00

This style of this antique tribal bracelet was most likely made by a Shan silversmith and could have been worn by the Lahu, Akha and Lisu of Southeast Asia’s hill tribe peoples. It is made from solid high grade silver and bears an attractive incised decoration. The band is unusually thick and it is the only one of its kind we have seen to date.

Availability: In stock

This hill tribe silver bracelet was acquired in Northern Laos where authentic antique tribal silver jewelry is now in short supply.
