Art Deco Sterling Carved Coral Floral Link Bracelet
A wonderful carved coral bracelet from the Art Deco era (ca1920)! This beautiful bracelet features 7 coral links that are set in sterling silver. Each coral link is hand carved with a beautiful floral motif, with shapely cutouts and engraved accents. The oval links rest in open backed bezel settings, which are connected by small silver rings in between. When worn, the bracelet wraps comfortably around the wrist and fastens with a secure push disguised within the final link. A safety chain provides additional security when worn. Stamped on the tongue of the clasp is a small maker's mark. The coral has a natural salmon color, which is rich in appearance, and includes subtle patches of soft yellow inclusions. The bracelet would make a gorgeous everyday accessory!
Measurements: The bracelet measures approximately 6.5" long and would fit nicely on a small to average sized wrist. The largest center link measures about 1" long, 3/4" wide, and 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. There is no apparent damage to the carved coral links or sterling silver setting. The push clasp and safety chain are secure and in good working condition. There is a natural patina that gives a darkened antique appearance to the sterling setting. This is normal for vintage jewelry and adds to its unique character; however, the setting could be polished if a brighter look is desired.
