Freiheit's beautiful bracelet led me to dig out a few ethnic cuffs and do a bit of research. The book "Ethnic Jewelry" edited by John Mack says this is "example of Bedouin woman's cuff from Jordan or Palestine, 20th century". In picture 2 you can see it is marked EGYPT. It's a nice hefty 1.25" wide 96 gram cuff of a low grade silverplate over copper. It's a favorite. I usually wear it w/Native American Navajo cuffs that have similar design.
