Ethnic Asian Lotus Flower Hill Tribe Golden Triangle antique 20th century sterling silver cuff bracelet
Absolutely stunning display of ancient Eastern Asian culture. This Laos piece was created by the Hill Tribes. I have had this one attributed to the Golden Triangle whom were known for not only the elaborate designs but the hollow wear construction. This piece as been left in as is condition and not polished to keep the quality of the patina for age. There is a small amount of noise inside the cuff when it moves like there is "sand" or something inside. The seam is inact and there are no openings found on the outside of the piece. The end caps are sealed onto the bracelet. There is a stamp on the inside of the bangle that is either 10 or LO. This is a torque bangle and the to tips do not come together and are just slightly offset as seen in pictures.
It has been acid tested using 18kt solution which was positive.
The bracelet measures 2.3 inches internal diameter. The tips are 12mm pointed caps and the bracelet varies from 7.7mm to 12.8mm thick.
