Jewel of the day: Marteau Turkmen Silver Armband
This antique piece of Turkmen silver, an armband, looks fresh and contemporary though it is circa 1890. It is sold by NY-based Marteau for USD$545. They note, “The mountain ram is a sacred animal to the Turkmen and its horns are frequently used in rituals, you can see the curled horn motif throughout this bracelet. With the help of the ram, this cuff harnesses supernatural power for a look, and a feeling that unearthly.”
It measures 7″ interior circumference, with a 1″ opening, and is 3.25 ” high.
