RARE JAPAN ART DECO signed 950 SILVER BRACELET 52 gms !
- Source: eBay
Up for auction is this rare Japanese 950 silver Art Deco bracelet. It is marked cpo, in a diamond, silver 950 TOYOKOKY. I researched this piece for weeks and only came up with one other piece, by the same artist and that one was from the late 19th century. I wondered how that could be, with the cpo, (chief purchasing order) stamp. After further research, I found out, all items sold to American soldiers, during WWII, that were of Japanese origins, had to be stamped with this mark, age not withstanding, antiques would have been included.This piece measures 7 5/8" long, x 1" wide and weighs 52 grams. The clasp is unique. It is entirely hidden. T is a small button, when pushed, in conjunction with the next link, releases the bar, that slides into the link. It sounds complicated............it is. I spent 15 minutes trying to figure out how to open the bracelet. The bracelet is extremely well crafted and has an arts and crafts feel. It is striking in design and execution! Sure to please any collector of fine jewelry. The bracelet is uncleaned and is in superb antique condition. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO ASK.
