  • Sold Out! - Turkoman Cuff

Tekke Turkoman, 3 Row Carnelian Cuff

 Sorry, this old cuff is no longer available.  

Classic Tekke Turkoman Gilt Silver Carnelian Cuff.

With 4 raised plain silver reinforcing bands, each containing 3 domed carnelian “eyes”,
(with fine scratches from wear, and 9 stones in total.) enclosed in “birdlike” scrolls,
inscribed into the gilt/silver.

A fairly patinated piece, with a fine balance to these decorations.

The gap between the seven plain silver points on each side taper from 33mm to 26mm apart. This decrease is from a previous owner, squeezing it, to fit, there is consequently a dent next to the centre point.

What looks like heavy, solid silver is actually hollow, filled with a reinforcing resin.
There is consequently no bending to fit!

It’s in excellent condition, so DON’T try to adjust L 82 x W 56mm (internal/wrist)

Age: Mid /late 20th century.

Size: L 82mm x W 56mm

Weight: 232 grams
