This beautiful bracelet is a highly detailed and unique design for REBAJES, whose work is most commonly know for sculptural simplicity. Here, the solid links are made of banded frames encasing large 'faux bois' (wood grain) ovals. Six panels are linked with doubled bars top and bottom, giving the bracelet great flexibility.
A fabulous piece for your copper art jewelry collection!
Substantial in weight (42g) and style. 7-3/4" in length. Just under 1" wide. Some places on the ovals are subtly darker than others, perhaps part of the design, or perhaps a little patina. Other than that, no imperfections to note. Signed on the bottom of the secure clasp. Late 1940s to early 1950s.
I have a pair of Renoir earrings in the shop with a very similar finish, in case your bracelet wants companions!
Gently cleaned and ready to wear. Securely wrapped and shipped in a gift box. For more Copper Art Jewelry, as well as other fun to fab vintage finds, please take a moment more to browse my shop. And thanks for taking the time to view this Vintage Gin find!
