Old DECO CHINESE Silver Vermeil Enamel GEMS BANGLE PAIR
An early 20th c. rare pair of Chinese silver vermeil repousse bangles adorned with highly stylized bird figures, which according to Susan Dods might well be Mandarin ducks or pigeons whose mating for life made them appropriate themes for wedding jewelry. In the pair at hand, one of the bangles has bezel set jade cabs and the second has coral. There are four gems in each piece , all perfect and secure in their settings and their enamel decoration is executed in two shades of blue. The bracelets have a diameter of 2 11/16" (inner) while the width of each bangle (meaning the repousse part plus the stone seen from above) is 3/8". The set weighs 34.3 grams and is signed "SILVER" on both pieces with one of them having an additional, badly stamped hallmark (possibly MADE IN CHINA, or some variation of that?). Dating in the 1900-1920 period and in excellent vintage condition.
