antique silver 'warrior' bangle from Timor
This bangle was handcrafted by a silversmith of the Atoni people of West Timor Island, Indonesia. It was hammered from melted Dutch guilder coins which were minted in Holland and used throughout Indonesia during the 1800's. The silver content of these coins was between 72% and 94.5%. These bangles were worn by both men and women. Sometimes called 'Warrior' bracelets, they were intended to protect the wearer and also act as an offensive weapon in hand-to-hand combat.
The bangle weighs 191 grams. Inside measurement = 5 7/8 inches ; gap = 7/8 inches
