Victorian Gold-Filled Two-Tone Crown Motif Bangle Bracelet
A fabulous crown motif bangle bracelet from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! This wonderful gold-filled piece features a lovely twisted wirework pattern which lines the entire front surface. Gracing the center are five crown shapes formed by fine twisted wirework and rose gold-tone oval centers. Curled accents rest between each crown and a complementary twisted wire borders the top and bottom edges of the design. The bracelet is hinged at the side, opening at a push clasp that releases when lifted, and the clasp tongue is stamped "PAT'D SEPT.14.80". Two figure-eight latches flank the bracelet closure for additional security. This stylish bracelet has a rich design, easily mistaken for real gold and the piece would make a gorgeous addition to any jewelry collection.
Measurements: The inside opening (where your wrist would rest) measures approximately 2" wide and 1 3/4" tall. The bangle is about 1/2" wide and slightly more than 1/8" thick.
Condition: The bracelet is in overall great antique condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the two-tone gold-filled setting and all of the wirework detail is in fine condition. Although the clasp does fasten, the two figure-eight safety latches are necessary for secure wear, as it opens easily if accidentally pushed.
