With its millennia-old culture, China has always fascinated Europe. It is impossible to imagine European art of the last centuries without chinoiseries, Chinese arts and crafts, especially porcelain, was a status symbol at all European courts and a sign of discriminating taste. Then, at the beginning of the 20th century, when long-distance travel became easier, trade relations could be expanded and thus the Middle Kingdom moved closer, genuine Chinese arts and crafts also became affordable for the middle classes. The beautiful bracelet presented here was created in the middle of the 20th century. At that time, the Chinese government commissioned the production of high quality handicrafts for export, in order to provide the young state with foreign currency for reconstruction after the long years of civil war. The links of the bracelet are set with four purple glowing cabochons of amethyst, which delight with their warm colour. The large cabochons are set in a fine chain mesh of silver wire with delicate filigree ornaments. According to the ancient teachings of Feng Shui, amethyst is said to bring good luck, health and prosperity to its wearers. This results in a wonderful and unusual piece of jewellery from the Far East, which is also very well preserved. It found its way to us from Hamburg.
