This Gorgeous Antique bangle is an outstanding example
of Hayward’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
enamel-like decoration. Amazingly, it appears to have used little, if at all!
It features etched Cabbage roses – the Ambassors of
Love - and foliage 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. The sides have a dome-like
roundedness. This is truly like 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.
