This is the widest English Gate bracelet I have seen. So impressive in size and workmanship. The bracelet has the most fluid links and one of the most comfortable bracelets.
Both O rings on the bracelet are original and are hallmarked with Birmingham, Anchor Lion and D for year 1910. It is also Hallmarked B&S. This was produced by Brook & Son company which was in business between the years 1890 ~ 1920. The padlock is hallmarked Lion for Sterling, Cat head for London and an E, also for year padlock had date mark for 1979 . It is also hallmarked with a makers mark LC. The bracelet is antique and the padlock was a later addition.
The bracelet measures just a hair under 1 1/2" at its widest portion. It gently tapers down where the O rings are placed. The padlock, like most has a simple push down release button which is in perfect condition.
The bracelet and padlock are both in excellent condition with no apologies to be made. The bracelet measures 7 1/2" long. This will fit a medium to large wrist. If you have a very tiny or small wrist, this bracelet will be too large for you unless you decide to wear the bracelet pushed up the arm. The bracelet has wonderful weight and is exactly 39 Grams.
I would consider this bracelet to be in the rare category as I have done quite a bit of research on these antique gate bracelets and this is by far the widest bracelet I can find. Unique and unusual in size. This is just a stunning example of a very fine English gate bracelet. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
