Ersari Turkoman Silver Cuff

 

A smallish, very worn engraved silver Ersari Turkoman wristcuff, with a plain central field bordered with bands of twisted wires on both sides.

The silver is approaching the sensuous worn smoothness we seek in an old used/worn Tribal Silver piece, a quality only achieved with long wear. This mellow smoothness is delightful, but just as easily it would respond magnificently to a gentle polish with a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth."

This is quite a small cuff for a medium wrist, the internal measurement is about L 60 mm x W 48 mm.

It's 35 mm wide on the wrist, at the widest point, tapering down to two solid "teeth" guarding the gap which measures 27 mm. (Two teeth are unusual normally it's three or one.)

If you have a smallish wrist and can get through that gap you're in but it's too firm for any more than a minor adjustment.

You only need to wobble a limp wrist in or out, any clenching will make it harder to get on, as your tendons tighten.

I wouldn't attempt to adjust it, and you don't lock it, to avoid having to reopen it.

Repeated opening and closing will create a weak spot. SO DON"T!

 We may still have some other cuffs of this family, just search for TC113, TC114 and TC117.

Age: Mid/Late 20th Century.

Size: L 60 mm x W 48 mm X D 35 mm.

Weight: 34 grams.
