Victorian Gold-Filled Repousse Hinged Bangle Bracelet
A stunning gold-filled bangle bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This beautiful bracelet is intricately detailed with an elegant scrolled motif created in in raised repousse detail, which travels along the front surface of the bangle. The bracelet is hollow inside, making it wonderfully lightweight and comfortable to wear. The hinged design opens and clasps with a small push button closure at the side. Stamped inside the bracelet a maker's mark that reads "FM CO". A subtle natural patina rests within the grooves of the repousse detail, adding further depth and texture to the design. The style of the bangle merges perfectly into modern day fashion, and would look fantastic stacked with other complimentary bracelets!
Measurements: The surface of the bracelet measures approximately 3/8" wide. The inside of the bracelet (where your wrist would rest) measures 2 1/2" wide and 2 1/8" tall. It would fit nicely on an average sized wrist.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold-filled setting, and the hinge and clasp are secure and in good working condition. There is some subtle color variation throughout the gold-filled setting, which is normal for a Victorian era piece and does not detract from the beauty of the design.
