This is a masterpiece of costume jewelry making where the finished product is actually more exciting than diamonds and gold to me. Such was the mastery of Theodore Fahrner. Although this bracelet bears no marks you will recognize the possibility that he was the father of this piece. The bracelet is 7" long by 1 1/2" wide made in sterling (tested) 96.75 grms in five large links held together with marcasite covered sterling straps. Each link has a marcasite covered sterling background with delightful and whimsical enamel leaves with coral beads. There are blue windows that overlook the landscape and black enamel borders. Each link has a elongated enameled orange square with green polka dots. The workmanship and condition are very good for it's age which I would estimate was between 1920's-1930's. The lock is a tongue that slips into a silver box. There is also a safety chain. If you want to own a piece a treasure, this is it.
