This stunning sterling silver bangle created during the late Victorian Era is charming and features unique details. the butterfly is one of the most popular designs used during the Victorian era and follows the English fondness for the Japanese craze.
There are distinct markings inside both sides of the bracelet. One features a complete English hallmark--the maker "S. Bros" as well as the Birmingham anchor. The date mark is not clear enough to read but is possible 1883.
The ornate detailing and beautifully executed "fringe" design are unique and add a noteworthy attraction to the bangle we have rarely seen. The bracelet weighs 32.5 grams--heavier than many we have featured. It measures 5.5cm in diameter and is 1 inch in width. The hinge is perfect. There are two tiny rings on each side of the closure to which a safety chain could be added although it is not necessary.
We have seen collectors wearing two or more bangles of varying design and width on the wrist. It's a delightful display and surely attracts attention.
