Good evening, Alaa. I finally weighed them. They are 86 and 90 grms. As anticipated they are fairly light.
Thank you very much Peter and Alaa. I was very lucky to find these. Alaa, I am very sorry I overlooked your email. Actually, the anklets are quite light as the silver sheet is not too thick. I will see if I can weigh them some way as at presente I do not have a scale at home!!
Stunning indeed - congratulations Jose!
At last i know who got these beauties and honestly i am very happy that it is one of the forum members.
These are always very heartwarming when you discover the unusual (for kabyle pieces i mean) and exquisite patterns once they are cleaned.
I have had the chance to find some of these but they are absolutely rare pieces and your pair is one of the best crafted i have seen so far.
NB: Can you provide the weight of the pair when you have time. thanx
Delicate and beautiful. The engraving at the centre reminds me a little of Tuareg work. How lucky you were to find them. Congratulations, Jose.
Thank you all for your nice comments. I was very lucky to find these and spent quite sometime polishing them and they were quite dark. Here you have some more pics (after cleaning)
Simple and elegant. Nice patina on these. Congrats!
Beautiful set with details of professional crafting. Congratulations for getting such a rare set.
