Chinoiserie Dragon Head Bangle
Here is a magnificent, rare, antique, heavy and chunky, brass double headed dragon motif woven mesh bangle.
Era: Probably 1890 - 1950
The first wave of Chinoiserie (Western and Chinese fusion design) came in the 18th century. Towards the end of the 19th century there was a renewed interest in all things Chinese. This style continued through the Art Deco period and onwards. I haven't quite been able to make my mind up about the age of this amazing bracelet which is why I've given it a wide range.
Style: Art Deco / Chinoiserie / Chinese Revival / Late Victorian / Art Nouveau era. Origin: Austria
