Heavy silver anklet "Khal-khal", Mauretania 01.09.905
At least one pair of these heavy anklets form part of the dowry of the Maure women. The anklet is formed by a central chiselled central plate, two bows leading to 2 lateral plates and the ending round knobs. The decoration of the 2 lateral plates is normally different for each plate. The ones in silver form also as monetary reserve and can be traded in times of hardship. They are worn by pairs, the central plate to the outer side of the leg.
