Common Menagir and Hagula bracelets (plain silver and with gold). With gold wash and silver items soldered on. Also notice the design on the back of the bracelet, shown in the slide-show. According to Miranda Morris, 'When gold became more readily available in Oman, and as and when she or her husband could afford it, a bedouin woman took other pieces to have gold-leaf added to them, or for them to be gold-washed...If a piece were to be gilded, it was generally considered better to have it done in Adam, where the silversmiths had a lot of experience in gilding silver, rather than to send it south to Salalah, where gilding was little practised.' See Miranda Morris and Pauline Shelton, 'Oman Adorned: A Portrait in Silver' (Muscat, 1997) p.221. Diameter 8 cm Height front 4,3 cm.
