Antique, late 19th or early 20th c, I believe, Chinese wedding bracelet wrought in gilded silver with three figural carved pai gow panels set in raised bezels. The panels are almost identical and feature symbols that are auspicious to newlyweds, namely a cricket, a dragon and a phoenix. The silver frame is beautifully worked with intricate cut-outs and repousse prunus flowers. I believe the panels are made of cow bone that has beautifully mellowed over the years as is the case with the gilding. The bracelet measures 7" long and its width varies between 1 3/4" and 5/8". It weighs 46.8 grams and it's hallmarked "CHINA SILVER". This is a gorgeous piece in very good vintage condition with some small losses in the carved panels and possibly in the two silver links as well but I am not sure of that.
