Japanese Amita Silver Damascene Link Bracelet with Multi Scene Link and Figural Pattern Back. The ancient technique of making Damascene is a process that takes skill, and a steady engraver's hand. The original method used silver with 18 and 24k gold, done originally in Japan. Amita was a well-known maker of quality Damascene in the early 1900s. This Amita bracelet has 6 rectangular silver links with figural and landscape inlay decoration in silver and real gold. I have not tested the quality of the gold, as I would have to damage the design. The term for this type of work is "Zogan". Each plaque has a different scene including Mount Fuji, pagodas, cherry blossoms and bamboo stalks, as well as mums, and birds in cherry trees. The back of the links is engraved with a type of engraving called "Hori" Dating from 1940s Japan the bracelet has inner circumference of approximately 7" by 1 1/4" wide. Signed "SILVER AMITA JAPAN" which is at least 900 the gold is 14k or 18K, which is normal for Amita pieces. It dates in the 1930s-50s and is in excellent condition. Very weighty, this beauty looks like it was hardly ever worn.
