This is an amazing ankle bracelet from the Dong Son culture and Ancient Asia (circa 200 BC). This work of art is intricately decorated with typical Dong Son motifs. There are no repairs to the piece. As is common with bronze from this period and region, there is some surface delamination which accounts for the lighter colored areas. I have included a 35x micrograph in the photos that shows a layer of soil, a layer of malachite based patina, the corroded sublayer and some copper oxide. This gorgeous and rare piece measures roughly 10 cm across and weighs 615 grams. Asian antiquities are are becoming more and more difficult to find as demand is increasing exponentially. Don't miss this opportunity to add a truly unique piece to your collection.
