    This is a silver-plated brass filigree bracelet with cinnabar panels, probably dating back to 1920-1945. The filigree work is very intricate although some of the silver plate is rubbing off leaving the brass exposed. Some of the panels are a bit loose, and one has been glued back in at some point causing some staining on the metal.

    It's marked "CHINA" on the back so clearly made for export. The "China" mark indicates that it is brass that has been silver plated rather than solid silver, but you can clearly see the brass showing through on the inside from wear. Thanks for looking!
