New Find: Toyokoki Silver Jade Bracelet
We were able acquire a silver Modernist Bracelet with Jade Ball Dangles made by Toyokoki Japan.
Beautiful and a quite striking silver Jewelry Piece.
It echoes the Modernist Period of Silver Art Jewelry.
This particular piece is from post WWII through the 1950’s.
I’ve seen bracelets from Toyokoki made in similar fashion of Modernist Silver Style,
but none with Dangle Apple Green Jade Balls as accents.
Wearable even 60 years later the style and workmanship of the bracelet is timeless!
Renown Silver Smith in Post War Japan . Toyokoki Company
did a variety of Silver Items.
Most Marked with an impressed CPO. Central Purchasing Office,
from the information reviewed Toyokoki merchandise with this mark
was for Military Exchanges or PXs.
The general agreement though, is that any Toyokoki Silver Jewelry is rare
and sought by Silver Collectors.
Japanese Silver Jewelry Pieces also contain a higher silver content
than sterling silver most were Marked 950 for silver.
