Quite a rare and interesting Japanese heavy mixed metal bracelet, with what appear to be Noh theater masks of different characters around the circumference. The faces are in different metal shades with insets of silver and gold and defined with deep set eyes, an open mouth with teeth, and some eyes cut through. Very intricate design with the faces arranged between scrolling lines, and flat areas with inset flowers. An exceptionally striking art piece.
Condition: Very nice.
