The powerful attraction to designs of nature is evident in the workmanship exhibited in this wonderful sterling bracelet. The Japanese were delighted by the simplicity
of nature and both the English and French followed their lead.
A single blade of grass, swaying bamboo, birds, insects, flowers and plants were among the designs found and copied from Japanese culture. These designs were the central theme of Japanese art and the designs soon found their way into English silver work. In addition touches of gold were added to the aesthetic theme such as the bird and butterfly on this bracelet.
The bracelet is an excellent example of the Victorian use of sterling silver in the creation of a multitude of jewels without the great expense of gold. This bangle is an inch in width and 7 1/2 inches around. It weighs 29.9 grams. It opens and closes with the use of an excellent clasp. An interior marking reads "sterling silver" . Another mark (partly obscured) reads "BROS". Miner dent on the underside of the bracelet could be eliminated by a jeweler. It has no adverse effect on the workmanship of the bracelet or its design.
We have been fascinated by the immense quantity and quality of these English bangles and happily offer several for your pleasure to view and purchase.
