Another Egyptian silver filigree bracelet from a family collection - I've put a link in the first comment to the story of the first one.
This one has very clear stamps on the solid panels. The filigree panels are also stamped but it's so hard to make out the symbols.
The left-hand stamp is the Egyptian mark for 800 silver which is commonly used for filigree because the impurities help it to keep the shape better than higher purity silver which is softer (thanks Efesgirl for correcting me on that one!). The letter "O" indicates that it was made in 1939-1940, so a couple of years later than the first one I posted.
I used to wear this bracelet a lot as a teenager in the 80s but I left it behind when I left home. I've been wearing it again since I got it back from my Mum! My mum has a similar one with square panels, but hers has no stamps on it that I can find.
