Description The chased bracelet is made of a larger (2/3) and a smaller piece (1/3) that together form a hollow ring. The design depicts four-leaf clovers, six on the larger piece and three on the smaller piece of the ring. The lower rim has twenty loops, each with a ring and a ball-shaped, hollow dangle. One ring has lost its ball. On the inner side of the bracelet is an Arabic stamp with the name of the ruler: al- Mansur. Al-Mansur Ali I ruled from AH 1189 to 1224 (AD 1775-1809). An engraved Hebrew inscription names the silversmith: Yosef Kohen.
