This finely detailed sterling silver bangle bracelet is English, circa 1860. The design was influenced by the Aesthetic Movement following the trade agreement with Japan in 1854 by Commodore Perry. This agreement opened the world to the art of utilizing mixed metals, known as Shakudo and Shibuichi,

This lovely example, has a branch of leaves resembling the Guilder Rose, rendered in yellow gold vermeil. The leaves are applied to a hand hammered backdrop, adding a soft texture to the composition. It is 'framed" on the perimeter in rose gold vermeil. The back is typically unadorned. It opens and closes with a secure push clasp.

The bracelet is in excellent condition and retains the original safety chain. It measures approximately 7 1/4 inches X 1 inch and will fit an average wrist.

This is a fine example of 19th century design, so relevant to today's fashion.
