Chinese Silver Enamel Coral Dragon Bracelet

As a collector, I love to find variations on a theme …the two dragons chasing the pearl is one of the most common images in Chinese ornaments and this is the third dragon and pearl bracelet that I have written about.


Hand cut salmon coral beads; threaded and wrapped … sliver dragons with blue enamel highlights … solid silver pearl.


0005-1 2

Just look at the three bracelets …. they say more about the creativity and ethnic diversity of the Chinese silversmith than I can.


Chinese Silver Enamel Coral Dragon Bracelet c. 1880-1910, Marked: SILVER. Diameter: 8.3cm outer, 6cm inner.
