Circa 1920s-1930s, this five panel hand spun silver vermeil bracelet is bezel set with three high rise green jade cabochons. An export from China during the Art Deco era, the hinged panels wrap securely and comfortably about the wrist, it's design ensuring a no twist / no turn fit. The jade panels will remain top side. The spun silver work is exquisite -- finely spun silver wires worked into an intricate lacy pattern. Three substantial green jade cabs with wonderful composition and color are protected top side by high bezel sides and at back, with lacy oval frame work. The vermeil ( gold over silver ) finish remains intact, with minimal age appropriate wear.
The bracelet measures approximately 6 3/4 inches x 1 1/8 inches at it's widest point with push in box type clasp and detachable safety chain. The bracelet profiles to a max of about 1/2 inch. The jade cabs are approximately 17 millimeters x 18 millimeters. (The cabs are not exactly the same size -- measurements can vary by approximately 1 millimeter.) Weight of the bracelet is about 30 grams.
