The Noh mask is of an older male with long red beard expressing wisdom. The Noh Samurai warrior/devil face used on this bracelet is one of the most common Selro faces. While the red faces typically represent exotic cultures, the color of the stones used in this bracelet are more associated with Tudor royalty of Britain. This humorous contrast of styles gives the piece interest. The red face is in stark contrast with the warm gilt metal and the dark stones..

This mid-1950 Selro "Samurai warriors" bracelet is 7 1/4" x 1.5" at its widest point. It is hallmarked Selro Corp. on the back of each warrior as well as on the metal. The heads are thermoplastic with painted detailing.
