Circa 1940, a beautiful vintage Chinese export sterling silver bangle enamelled in gorgeous oriental flowers all the way around against a vivid aqua blue background.
A lovely quality piece with particularly good Champlevé enamel work, the bangle is crafted on the round with a hinge at one side, a push button clasp on the other and it has a safety chain adding to the overall decorative appeal, very attractive.
The bracelet is hallmarked on the inside and it is in lovely condition, we can see no areas of enamel loss and the colours are still beautifully vibrant. The clasp opens without a problems and closes with a solid snap.
Chinese export jewellery (1911-1948) is very collectible and has an interesting history, not only did the communist government in China oversee the manufacture of jewellery for export, it also required its citizens to relinquish their personal silver jewellery which was then sold on by the government to Western markets.
