Story

The later third of the 19th century was an amazing time for jewelry. Influence came from as far as the “Orient” and as near as north of Birmingham, England and culture of the ancients effected design. Themes of naturalism and the impact of the mid 19th century open door trade policy with Japan most certainly collided with the ongoing perceptions of jewelry style. Inspired by the Japanese sense of design, techniques and their use of botanical and nature motifs, Victorian jewelers were stimulated to create a veritable bonanza of changes.

A silver cuff has become the canvas for the rendering of rare superb and magnificent subject matter and composition. Definitely inspired by exposure to Japanese art, this wide hinged bracelet supports a 360 degree panorama of exotic flora and fauna.

In homage to an Asian wall hanging, panel after panel depict favorite insect and animal motifs such as a dragonfly, grasshopper, crane and botanical wonders of elephant ears, remarkable flowers and a wall of bamboo. The textured backdrop creates a three-dimensional effect of shadow and light with each image appearing to jump right out at the viewer. A hidden tongue and groove box clasp ensures security.

Date: November 1877.
