This stunning antique bangle bracelet, post-Victorian, features a large central amethyst glass stone and elaborate applied decorations on either side. It is marked Pat. Oct. 6, '08, and S.O.B. & Co. for S.O. Bigney, Attleboro, MA.
The condition is excellent overall. The fanciful embellishments, bridging open space, are in fine condition, very crisp and well-defined. The large oval stone, measuring 13mm by 9mm, shows slight age commensurate surface wear but no scratches or chips. The gold filled metal is smooth and undamaged. (There is one small mark on the reverse where a previous owner performed a scratch test.) The clasp is in fine working order.
It measures 2-1/2" by 2-1/8" across the top; and will fit up to a size 6-3/4" wrist. At widest, the bracelet is 5/8". It tapers to 3/8".
