Vintage Chinese Enamel, Silver, and Turquoise Bracelet Narrow and 7 3/8"

This is an early 20th century (1920s or earlier) Chinese enamel and turquoise stone bracelet on filigreed silver.

It features complex filigree and granulation work as well as enamel elements. The bracelet measures 7 3/8" fully opened and stands 3/4" above the wrist. The turquoise stones show some matrix and are uneven, nugget shapes. It measures only 5/8" wide at the widest which is unusually narrow for these style bracelets. That makes it very comfortable to wear without losing any of its showiness. it is the first time we have encountered this style in this width. Very unusual.

The back side of the tongue of the box clasp is marked "silver" - the only marking on the piece which is what you would want to find on pre-WWII, older Chinese jewelry.

There are areas of missing enamel shown in the photos. There is good age patina to the silver. (We will leave the polishing to the buyer as they may or may not choose to eliminate the patina). There is no safety chain.

We have seen these bracelets, in this condition, sell in the $395-800.00 range.
