Hinged Cuff Bracelet

New Kingdom

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 118

Three pairs of hinged bracelets (26.8.125–.130) are associated with the tomb of three foreign wives of Thutmose III. They are all made of burnished gold inlaid with carnelian and glass that was originally turquoise and dark blue, but has faded. Each is inscribed on the inner surface with the cartouches and epithets of Thutmose III suggesting that they were a gift of the king.
