Victorian Engraved Gold Tone Small Size Bangle Bracelet
This is a early bangle bracelet with lovely engravings on the front....Patent date inside Aug. 31. 1858...before the turn of the century approximate time frame that it was manufactured. Small size bracelet. The sides open to reveal black elastic which helps to go over your hand and then "closes up where it is not seen"....which is in great condition (this elastic could be a replacement?). A small size to fit a small wrist 6 or 6 ½ and to open over a small hand of total width including the thumb to be 8" all around. It looks to be gold filled though not marked which is usual during that time.
2 ¼" side to side when closed..slightly over ½" wide wall..width of wall 1/8"....inside measurement 6 1/2"...my wrist is 6" and it fits comfortably above my wrist bone. Lots of wear left in this lovely bangle.
It is in nice vintage condition with only some light scratches on the back and two very tiny dings, & minor scratches on the front... not at all distracting and can be expected in such a vintage bracelet as this one is.
Comes in a gift box and would make a fabulous gift.
