Thai Bangle Bracelet - Red and White Heavy Enamel on Brass - Mythical Goddesses of Lightening and Thunder - 2-1/2" diameter

This bracelet is quite unique both in materials and color. The brass hinged circle bangle is adorned in a heavy enamel of a warm red and white in a cloisonne type appearance. The intricate scrolling of brass appears in the red panels and the extremely detailed figures in the white panels depict the mythical goddesses of Lightening (Mekkala) and Thunder (Ramasoon). I purchased this bracelet some time back at an antique shop, to add to my collection of Thailand jewelry, so I do not know its exact age or origin; however, I feel it is not a modern piece. I am basing that guess on the appearance and "feel" of the brass and the construction, not on any actual knowledge. The bracelet is substantially made with a concealed hinge and sturdy snap clasp with release lever. It is obviously hand crafted and constructed in a quality fashion. The inside diameter is 2-1/2" and the width is 7/16". The condition of this bracelet is lovely and appeared perfect at first glance. However, I did examine it closely with a magnifier and found there are two small areas where the red enamel is chipped and was perhaps professionally repaired with a clear fill to prevent further damage. I wore it several times and never noticed it. These flaws can be see in the last two pictures. Please contact me if you have questions. I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible; however since most of the items are either antique or at best vintage, due to their age, they are sold in "as is" condition.
