Art Nouveau 18kt Repousse Flower Motif Bangle Bracelet 38.3 grams
This floral bangle bracelet from the Art Nouveau era (ca1900) is quite spectacular! The piece, which is crafted in vibrant 18kt yellow gold, has a beautiful repousse motif that covers the entire outer surface. The design features an array of blooming flowers, which are beautifully carved and give wonderful depth and texture to the piece. Completing the artistry is a pattern of leaf-like accents that line the interior edge of the design, a lovely finishing touch. The bracelet is hinged and clasps at the side, allowing you to easily slide the bracelet on your wrist. When worn, the piece has a striking and substantial appearance that would look beautiful grouped with other similar bangles. A very versatile bracelet, it would make a fantastic addition to any jewelry collection!
Measurements: The interior of the bracelet (where a wrist would rest) measures approximately 2 1/2" wide and 2" tall. It would fit nicely on a medium sized wrist. The surface of the bracelet measures about 3/8" wide. The total pennyweight of the piece is 24.63 dwt (38.3 grams).
Condition: The overall condition of the bracelet is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no significant damage to or dents in the gold, and the clasp is secure and in good working condition. It looks like there may be one shallow indent on the side which is not noticeable due to the heavily textured 3-dimensional design.
