Provenance

UK art market

Bracelets of this type were produced in China for the local and export markets around 1900. This example is of unusually high quality. It comprises six hinged segments or sections of silver wire mesh which has been finely and evenly woven.

Four of the six segments has been inset in raised settings with a oval green jade cabochon.

The remainder of each segment has been decorated with silver spangles, silver filigree scrolls, and ‘cash’ motifs.

The bracelet opens with a press-stud mechanism. It retains its original gilded safety chain.

The bracelet is in excellent condition. There are no losses or repairs.
