Fine, Sri Lankan Silver Bracelet

Sri Lanka
19th century

Internal diameter: 5.7cm, width ate widest point: 2cm, weight: 49.6g

Available - Enquire

Provenance

UK art market

This fine, elegant silver bracelet is hinged and opens with a small crew mechanism. It comprises two thickly-walled but probably hollow silver tubes that are joined and decorated with two equi-distant fields of applied granulation and wire work in triangle and flower motifs.

The triangular granulation work is typical of a type of jewellery that was produced in Sri Lanka. Related examples are illustrated in Geoffroy-Schneiter (2011, p. 114).

The bracelet is well made. It is in an excellent and wearable condition. It has a pleasing patina, a good colour and obvious age.
