Available for your consideration is an Antique Persian??? Hand Painted Sterling Silver and Abalone Storybook Bracelet. I am identifying this piece as Persian, based on similar pieces online. I am not certain though. The person who I am selling this for, believes it may be Chinese. There are no sterling silver markings on this piece, but based on my experience with silver characteristics, I am fairly certain it is silver. The bracelet is hand painted with a variety of scenes, which are quite detailed. There is a gold hue from the abalone shell, which gives the piece a very unique look. You can see in the photos that some scenes have loss of paint. The clasp works perfectly and the bracelet appears to be in good condition for its' age. There is one corner on the bracelet, which appears to need repair, although the integrity is still good. I have small wrists and it fits very comfortably with room to spare.
The piece measure 7 3/4" in length and it is 1" wide.
Please review all photos carefully and let me know if you have any questions or comments.
