Siam Sterling Silver and Blue Enamel Panel Bracelet

This bracelet is rare and stunning. The sterling silver Siam bracelet is adorned with deep cerulean blue enamel on fourteen panels. The bracelet was hand crafted and most likely married the skills of a silversmith with those of an enamel artist. The traditional design depicts Mekkala, the Goddess of Lightning, a favored theme among Thai jewelry artists. She is rendered in fine detail on each panel and is in multiple poses.

The enamel has a beautiful marbled look and great light refraction with every movement of the bracelet. The fourteen panels are linked vertically creating rather than the more typical horizontal construction which would require substantially fewer panels.

The bracelet latches with a subtly disguised push clasp that is almost undetectable. The links are connected to one another with two jump rings which afford a flexible smooth fit.

It measures 7 1/2" long x 1" wide.

It is marked, "SIAM STERLING". There is another word under this that I cannot discern.

Circa 1940's. Condition is excellent with absolutely no damage. I have not polished the piece and leave that to the preference of the buyer.

In every regard, a stunning bracelet.

HISTORY: Siam Silver enameled jewelry is often referred to as niello ware, a description that should really be used only for jewelry that is black and silver colored. Colored enamel jewelry used a different technique and is not actually considered niello.
