A band of deeply embossed and oxidized silver encircles nearly half of this bangle, made of what looks to be lacquered bamboo. The design on the band is a combination of various symbols, one of which looks like an iris. The design is framed by a Greek key-like border; the band is secured to the wood bracelet by tiny pins. The bamboo surface shows few signs of wear; there is a tiny area of loss near the edge of the silver band (see Photo #3), but it very stable. The bangle dates to the 1920s and has an inner circumference of just under 8 inches.
