Egyptian Bedouin hallmarked silver bracelet Hagg Makkawi
This old 'asawir' silver bracelet was worn by people from the Siwa Oasis region of the western desert of Egypt. Armband type with chased Berber motifs, geometric patterns and a central raised rim. Has Ottoman Empire tughra and makers hallmarks which I believe are for Hagg Makkawi and the piece was probably made in Alexandria. There is a triple Egyptian hallmark, with a mark for 0.800, purity, the  lotus flower with lower left dot denoting Alexandrie
a) and an Arabic date letter. A similar bracelet and marks can be seen on page 90 and 91 of the reference below.
Similar style bracelets were also worn by Berber women in Tunisia, Libya and Algeria.
