1905 Antique Nouveau 14K Gold GF Jewelled Paste Expansion Repousse Bracelet

Of all the styles of expansion bracelets popular in the early 1900s, this would have to be the most elegant and stylish of all and Extra Special given its gorgeous, sparkling lilac pink paste stones! And, to be in such Fabulous condition really is miraculous – it is Rare to come across such a Beauty. The gold has a lovely yellow gold hue that takes on a rosy pink tint in different light.

Taking pride of place is the centerpiece featuring four paste stones, scrolls and sentimental Forget-Me-Not flowers. The actual band is comprised of rectangular puffy bars decorated with a rich repousse or embossed design typical of the era. These bars, with a mechanism of doubled wire, allow it to expand and contract. It is just so beautiful and looks fabulous on. The expansion is very good.

In this listing I have included a picture of the inside of a lid of a box with its maker’s information for informative purposes only. It is not included with the purchase.

COLOUR            It has the patina of bloomed yellow gold with a hint of pink/rose and the wonderful shininess & silky feel associated with quality antique jewellery. You will the thrilled with the Outstanding Quality and craftsmanship.
