This exquisite archeological-revival bangle is attributed to Robert Phillips, circa 1865. The hinged bangle is decorated with Egyptian hieroglyphs in glossy black enamel culminating in a jade intaglio with a covered compartment to the reverse. "ذات تو مظهر انعام سبحانی باد", written in Farsi, it translates to, "May your essence be a manifestation of divine blessings." A beautiful sentiment of well-wishing and hope for a positive and spiritually enriched existence. Hand fabricated in 15 karat gold, this bangle fits a petite 6" wrist. A rare and wonderful jewel.
