A very nice antique Tibetan silver bracelet known as a Dhugu. This is a nice chunky silver piece with engraved line decoration. It has been heavily rubbed from being worn over numerous years. It has a high silver content but is undoubtedly mixed with other metals to give more strength to the piece. Open ended bracelets have long been popular in Western Tibet and they can be very simple to highly ornate.
