This is a Jakob Bengel pinchbeck, red galalith linked bracelet measuring 7 3/4" long. The link on one end is missing a little folding link but this does not wearability of the piece. I received this from a British estate with other Jacob Bengel pieces. Pinchbeck was a special alloyed mixture made during the Victorian era and continued to be made by the Bengel company into the Art Deco period, to be a gold substitute. The red galalith has it's telltale sour milk smell just by rubbing it a little. A rare piece at a good price.
