    This is indeed a Selro Selini bracelet -- the faces are Toshikane porcelain from Arita, Japan. Unfortunately, they have lost much of their lacquer. Here's an eBay listing of a better preserved example:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-VTG-TOSHIKANE-SELRO-SELINI-STYLE-SEVEN-IMMORTALS-GODS-OF-FORTUNE-BRACELET-/160986418602?nma=true&si=Y1mVxVdty5wff4pWQnBc3wGXqoQ%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

    The Selini bracelets are a lot cruder than the Toshikane that was sold in Japan. For comparison: https://intotemptation.wordpress.com/2009/06/24/jewel-of-the-day-toshikane-gods-of-fortune-bracelet/

    They're the seven gods or seven immortals or something like that. Common motif

    Sorry but this bracelet was not made by Selro or Selini.

    I have no idea who made these beautiful pieces, they are often wrongly attributed to the works of Selro owing to the presence of faces. However, as an ardent collector of Paul Selenger's jewelry I can say with 2000 % certainty that they were not made by or for SELRO CORP.



    ? About The Seven Lucky gods of Japan - ??? Shichi Fukujin ?


    The Seven Lucky gods of Japan refers to a group of popular deities whose origins stem from Indian, Chinese and Japanese gods of fortune folklore.

    Collectively , they are called ??? Shichi Fukujin . In Japanese "Shichi" means seven "fuku" means luck, and "jin" means god, hence the transliteration "Seven Lucky gods".

    Except for the deity named Ebisu, all of the seven lucky gods of Japan do not originate from Japan. Three are from India (Daikokuten, Bishamonten, and Benzaiten) and three are from China (Hotei, Jurojin, and Fukurokuju).

    Each of the seven has been acknowledged as a deity for more than a thousand years and each has its own believers, primarily hailing from the respective professions that they belong to.

    Each of the seven gods has specific characteristics in appearance, clothes and props that he or she carries or is seen with. These physical characteristics of each of the seven lucky Gods are distinct in that they are specifically related to the respective professions that they patronize.

    The seven lucky gods look after the physical and commercial well-being of people and have come to be honored throughout the country.


    Each has a traditional attribute:

    1. Hotei, the fat and happy god of abundance and good health

    2. Jur?jin, god of long life

    3. Fukurokuju, god of happiness, wealth and longevity

    4. Bishamonten, god of warriors

    5. Benzaiten (Benten-sama), goddess of knowledge, art and beauty, especially music

    6. Daikokuten (Daikoku), god of wealth, commerce and trade. Ebisu and Daikoku are often paired and represented as carvings or masks on the walls of small retail shops

    7. Ebisu, god of fishers or merchants, often depicted carrying a sea bream

    Sorry about the question marks - they were "flowers bullets" that did not turn our right and I have no way of editing them.
