ALLSOPP-STELLER Art Nouveau 14kt Amethyst + Floral Repousse Bangle Bracelet
A stunning amethyst bracelet by Newark, NJ maker Allsopp-Stellar, Inc. from the Art Nouveau (ca1900) era! Crafted in vibrant 14kt yellow gold, this slip on style bangle adorns four vivid amethyst stones symmetrically resting along the surface. The bezel set stones display a luscious natural purple color, with facets that catch the light beautifully in their open back setting. Resting in between each stone is a stunning floral repousse design featuring a single budding rose at the center, surrounded by flowing leaves, vines, and additional delicate roses. The feminine design provides wonderful texture and depth, pairing perfectly with the amethyst stones and gold setting. Stamped along the smoothly polished inside of the bracelet is a "14" gold purity mark, beside the Allsopp-Steller, Inc. maker's mark. The hollow interior makes this incredible piece lightweight and comfortable to wear, perfect for displaying on its own, or stacking with other complimentary bangles!
Measurements: The inside of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 5/8" wide and approximately 2 1/4" tall and would fit nicely on an average to medium sized wrist. The surface of the bracelet measures slightly more than 1/2" wide and is about 1/4" thick.
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage the the gold repousse design or to any of the amethyst stones, all of which are intact.
