Vintage Chinese Champlevé Cloisonne Thin Bangle Stacking Bracelet
$22.00 This very old vintage Chinese bangle bracelet is just exquisite. This is an older piece, made from copper and then gilt. Beautiful green enamel leaves and pink and blue flowers. Note the flowers have coloring changing in each pedal. Best of Chinese cloisonné craftsmanship ... it is done on the inside as well as the outside.. Bangle is 6.5 mm thick, just over 1/4 inches and the inside diameter is 2-1/2" across. In great condition showing some aged patina that adds charm according to my opinion, but you may use silver polish to remove them if you choose to.
This is some information on how these pieces are made. Gives you a idea of how much work goes into these and the types of metal and precious metals used. After the original artwork is decided upon, the metal ribbon like strands of 24 karat gold wire are individually bent, twisted and oftentimes soldered together to produce a blueprint for where the colored enamels will later be painted. This design is attached to a base of pure silver by firing it with a clear coat of glass enamel in a kiln. After the silver has cooled from its initial firing, the painting process begins. The metal filaments serve as the pattern for the colorful enamel glass, and the artisan paints only one coat at a time into the design.
