Victor Primavera Sr., founded the Danecraft company, Providence, Rhode Island, is the 1940's. Danecraft is known for producing quality sterling silver and vermeil (gold metal over sterling) jewelry with designs similar to the Scandinavian silver jewelry and often inspired by nature. It is said, that the Danecraft sterling silver jewelry produced, was some of the best manufactured in terms of quality of design and craftsmanship the industry had to offer during post-war decades.
This lovely sterling silver link bracelet, circa 1940's-1950's, has a clean, modern appearance. It is composed of four, slightly oval, panels each with embossed, open-work, floral motif; perhaps a type of lily blossom with leaves. Panels are connected by a classic ribbed band which is repeated as the pattern for the clip-style clasp. The panels are slightly curved to follow the contour of the wrist. The bracelet measures 7" in length and 7/8" in width. Three of the panels are stamped 'Sterling", while the fourth carries a cartouche stamped "Danecraft Sterling" with the copyright symbol. There are no damages; nice original patina.
