This is a late 19th or early 20th century Chinese silver vermeil jewelry or keepsake box set with multi colored stones and decorated with fine metal work and three color enamels. The box is cylindrical and measures about 3 inches in diameter and about 3 3/4 inches high. The lid lifts off to show a 3 inch deep interior and three bangles, two of which have separators and can be removed to wear. They are then stored and displayed on the exterior of the container after use. The inner measurements of the bangles (bracelets) are 2 3/8 inches in diameter and 3/4 inches wide. There is a matching double mark on the interior of each bangle and the outside of the box, and the bottom of the box is marked 'silver'. Each bangle and the lid has six stones around the edge with an additional 7 stones on the top. The colors of the stones are: green, orange, pink, purple, and white. The piece is in excellent condition, not polished, and the stones and enamels are intact ...... $1,450.00
