A fabulous vintage Chinese bracelet beautifully made of silver and bamboo.
The sterling has an amazing repousse design of two dragons.
The dragon heads are three dimensional, they have amazing detail with high relief, fine engraved lines, and distinct teeth.
The dragons face each other, they hold a hollow ball in their mouths that represents a pearl which is symbolic of wisdom.
The ornate design is crisp and distinct.
The wood is smooth and rich, the sterling has a warm patina with perfect oxidation in the recesses.
The bracelet is a large size so it needs a large wrist or it can be worn higher on the arm.
The inside diameter measures 2.75" by 2.5", the inside circumference is 8", the width of the bracelet is .5" in the front.
Excellent condition, no damage and minimal wear, there is a small dent on the ball on one side, no distraction.
Marked silver where the bracelet is riveted to the wood, I was unable to get a decent photos, the bracelet tested sterling with acid.
A beautiful ethnic Chinese bracelet in a hard to find style.
Please view the large photos for best detail.
