Japanese Komai Shakudo Bracelet | Stamped Amita Japan | 1940-1950

This circa mid-1940s exquisite Bracelet is Shakudo. This was originally used for Samurai Sword fitments. Shakudo is an alloy of copper with a small quantity of Gold, pickled in a solution to produce a blue black color, or iron, exquisitely inlaid with silver and gold. Supreme masters of metal work produced these items. This wonderfully treasured gold motif bracelet depicts motifs from nature. These were widely known in the West as Amita damascene, from the name of a 20th-century manufacturer of such items for export. Amita damascene included Shakudo, shibuichi, gold, silver, and bronze for inlays. Clasp in original working condition and detail. Very delicate and in perfect vintage condition. Dimensions: 6-3/4”L with varying height/widths of each hinged panel.
