Austro-Hungarian Silver Renaissance Bracelet Lapis and Pearls

This is a rare Austro-Hungarian bracelet made of silver with a gold wash. The front has three large un-dyed natural lapis lazuli that still shows its shadows of calcite around a few of the pyrite deposits. The center stone is highlighted with tiny fresh water seed pearls strung on wire with pearls shaped like crescent moons on both sides. There are eight beads of Lapis with one in each corner wrapped in flower petals covered with blue enameling seen on many Victorian pieces. Two half rounds of the stone set at each end. Scattered throughout are blue facet crystals. The bracelet is hinged and has a tongue clasp*. There is also a safety chain. The entire bracelet has a beaded silver edge and is hand worked with open Renaissance Revival motif. It measures just shy of 2.5 inches across the inside. Back of bracelet band is .5", and front is 1.5 inch across.

The Middle Ages was a fabulous era for Hungarian goldsmith's art. Hungary's neighbors were astonished at the Hungarian aristocracy's love for Eastern-style ostentation. It was, however, confined to a few regions that later fell outside of Hungary's territory, mostly to Austria to the West. *This bracelet has four markings: the first is a P which dates it at 1851 mid Renaissance period, the second is the maker's mark K T with a stamp above it that I can't make out well, and lastly there is the stamp with a dogs head (not the same one used in the 1920s in Czechoslovakia for silver fineness).

Condition: Very good - in fact I see no problems at all.
