Copper seems to be quite the style these days - makes sense, given the wonderful rich metal tone found in older pieces. This demi-parure, consists of a cuff bracelet and matching clip-back earring. The finish is highly polished copper with a contrasting oxidized finish in the background. The bracelet measures 7/8 inch wide. It is somewhat flexible, so should fit a range or wrist sizes up to about 7". Each clip back earring measures 7/8 inch long.
This design is called "Espana" and is shown on page 125 of the book "Copper Art Jewelry: A Different Lustre", by Burkholz and Kaplan. All pieces are marked "Renoir" in script. There is a blemish on the back side of the cuff and a bit of minor wear right near the opening of the cuff, but are in overall good condition with unmarred decorative elements.
