An amazing antique bracelet signed by E.A. Bliss (or E.A. & Co.) marked with the conjoined E A Co. and small bee on the clasp to represent the B in "Bliss". This mark dates the piece between 1883-1914.
Intricate and very ornate, the design was influenced by Czechoslovakian pieces of the era.
The center jewel is a very large, foil backed faceted amber glass known as Vauxhall glass, it measures 1&1/8" by 7/8", it is flanked by three deep set 3mm seed pearls on each side.
The metal has fancy Etruscan and filigree style designs, the bracelet is quite substantial in both size and weight.
Measures 1.75" wide in the front, it tapers to 5/8" in the back, the sides at the clasp and hinge are 1&1/8" wide, the interior circumference is 7.75" inches.
It weighs a hefty 78.7 grams.
Excellent condition, no damage or visible wear, the finish is bright and clean, the clasp is very tight and secure as is the hinge.
One of most interesting, elaborate and majestic gilt brass & glass bracelets I have had the pleasure to offer, a rare and fabulous antique signed bracelet.
