Antique Angel Skin Coral Carved Dragon Hound Bangle Bracelet

This is a very rare, antique coral bangle bracelet. Made of angel skin coral it is hand-carved in the shape of a ferocious protecting hound-faced dragon. Victorian jewelry was full of symbolism and both the hound and use of coral are symbols of protection for the wearer. The coral is white with just the faintest blush of pink. It features a sterling silver tip to its tail and sterling silver safety chain (signed STERLING on clasp). The bracelet is in original condition and there have been no attempt to clean the coral or to polish the silver.

Measurements: Fits any size adult wrist. Best fit on a 7.5" to 9" wrist. Can also be worn comfortably on the forearm. The coral links are strung on a metal wire frame that is malleable. Inner diameter is 2 1/2", Hound's head measures 1 1/2" Long x 9/16" Wide, Largest coral bead measures 9.3mm

Weight: 32.8 grams

Condition: Very good antique condition and shows light wear commensurate with its age. One black eye bead is missing and there are a few small flea bites to the ends of dragon scale links, the sterling silver clasp is not original and was added at some time during the bracelets history.

Item ID: ECR-236


Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: Pink, Size: Adult
