This Gorgeous Antique bangle’s pictures do it no justice. It is
an outstanding example of its maker’s Quality and Design and is a Victorian Revival
piece of the 1880s, which was popular in the 1920-30s, and this is due to the
It features etched Cabbage Roses – the Ambassadors of Love - and foliate accents upon its richly domed
face sweeping their way to the hinge & clasp areas. Black enamelling accents
this design beautifully. All of this rests upon a richly stippled background
with the sharp, square edges forming a border at the bangle’s edge. What a work
of art and the exact design is duplicated on the back.
The hinge and clasp are in perfect working order and the
original safety chain is in place.
It has a wonderful buttery
yellow gold hue and the silky feel associated with solid gold.

This bangle is in near MINT Antique condition. I
believe it was rarely is ever worn. There is NO wear and no dings, dents or
damage, no loss of enamel from the decoration. Bangles in this fabulous
condition are difficult to come by. This is of Heirloom Quality and would make
a fantastic addition to any jewellery collection. This will no doubt increase
in value unlike a new purchase today.
