Egyptian 900 Silver Cuffs / Bedouin Armor Bracelets / Siwa Oasis

About

Exceptional vintage silver Egyptian signed large cuffs with slits that flex over the hand, a bit, to allow one to slip them on. The first mark seems to read: 900 Silver content, maybe a flower hallmark? Hard to read. Could be by famous Bedouin jeweler Mohamed El Mekkawi, the signature seems to match. The last script is the Arabic date code, which I cannot quite make out- but appears to be a waved line and dot above it on the right upper corner. 467 grams of 900 silver total for the pair. From an important estate collection of vintage jewelry that featured many Egyptian pieces, including ancient documented Egyptian jewelry. The design and look are stunning in person and quite a chic statement. Since I cannot read the date mark, my best estimate is to be on the safe side is 1920s. Appear to have two makers marks that are matching and were made together by the same artist. I love the large rounded riveted stud like details. Each: 2.65" wide diameter opening. About 7.65" around with the opening 8" total circumference. 3" wide. From the Siwa area, a relatively remote Oasis known for the silver jewelry. Such pieces were worn by for weddings.
