It is my pleasure to offer this Awesome
Antique Victorian Revival Bangle Bracelet. It dates to around the 1930s
by design and styling as it is reminiscent of those Antique designs
popular some 40-50 years earlier in the 1860s-80s.
It is carved and stamped with a fantastic
design comprised of stylised FLORAL, foliate and curved lines set amid a
richly stippled background which sets it off superbly and catches the
light at every turn. The design is filled with a black enamel-like
material giving it the appearance of genuine enamel the technique of
which is referred to as t’aille d’epargne
or black enamel tracery. It is an enamel technique whereby an etched
design is filled with powdered enamel then fired in a kiln. This same
design is repeated on the back and is framed by the rib to the edge.
The box & tongue clasp clicks closed securely and the hinge functions as new. The safety chain offers additional security.
This bangle bracelet has a wonderful buttery yellow gold hue and that silky smooth feel usually only associated with solid carat gold.
