Hello, just wondering if the gold and silver/niello watch chain is for sale

Hi, I have a similar bracelet as the green one by Barboteaux, only in blue, with a slightly different pattern.
Can you tell me something about them?

Two cloisonné enamel bracelets with the links strung through gilt ribbon and with an ingenious adjustable snap clasp. Signed Barboteaux, circa 1930s.

Cloisonné is a form of enameling in which cells, or cloisons, are created by wire to form a design, and then filled in with wet-packed enamel.

Fahrner matte enamel oriental style pendant with chain circa 1927.  Silver, gilded, soldered with corded wires (flowers and waves), turquoise matte enamel, amethyst center stone with inset coral beads, coarse grain forming hexagonal outline of pendant.  Matte enamel links with small metal squares inset with coral.  Stamped Sterling Germany.

Plique-à-jour bracelet in the form of stylized butterflies.  Sterling, chrysoprase, onyx, enamel, marcasites.  Butterfly wings are plique enamel in green, white and purple.  This is a good example of plique-à-jour enamel shading within a cell.

Plique-à-jour is a type of enameling in which cells are filled with wet-packed enamel and then fired on mica or some other substance to which the enamel won't adhere.  It differs from cloisonné enamel in that it doesn't have a metal backing, thus the fired enamel lets light shine through and creates a stained-glass effect.

Portrait of an infant--I think it is a girl--enamel on porcelain, 18 K gold, and rose-cut diamonds. C late 1800s. The porcelain base has had a lacquer coating to protect the painting. This is undoubtedly original. The painting is set in a silver frame on an 18K gold base and surrounded by 35 rose cut diamonds. The pin is original but I believe the clasp is a later replacement.
