Tribal Shell Armband

Cowrie-shell and vintage coin armband, traditionally worn on the upper arm or just above the elbow.  Cut and pierced cowrie shells, Arabic coins, with wool and cotton binding.  Early 20th century, most likely from the Thar desert region.  A surprisingly wearable piece given it's easy self-closing fastening, but definitely also one for collectors - these original pieces only very rarely come onto the market for sale.
