Dating to c.1880, this Anglo-Indian sterling-grade silver bracelet is a highly-wearable Raj delight!
Measuring 6 3/4" wearable length x 1 1/4" wide x 5 mm thick, this impressive cuff-style bracelet was in Madras, India for export to England, and is one of the finest examples of this type that I have ever seen! Comprised from six invisibly-hinged sterling silver plaques, each featuring the magnificent repousse work that native Madras silversmiths were famous for during the second half of the 19th-century! Each plaque depicts a Hindu deity with his or her attributes sitting on a beast or a large cushion!
I have seen dozens of pieces of Victorian Anglo-Indian jewelry before, but none as substantial and well-wrought as is this! The figures leap out at the viewer, and stand almost 1/2" proud of the backgrounds! The hidden clasp is in excellent working order, and the hand-cut tab is a delightful detain! Best of all, this bracelet has survived into the 21st century in as fine a condition as the most discerning collector could hope for; it is free of damage, repairs or replacements!
This bracelet has not been cleaned, and boasts a rich patina that collectors crave! Suitable for day or evening wear, this bracelet looks great paired with anything from blue jeans to a party dress, and just LOOK at all of the detail! Weighing in at a whopping 75.31 grams, this is a substantial bracelet that is oh-so-comfortable on the arm!
If you collect the BEST of the BEST in Anglo-Indian jewelry, this bracelet belongs on your wrist and in your collection! It would also make a stellar addition to any collection of Madras export jewelry, and will be shipped in a gift box. Do not miss this superb jewel; layaway is not available on this item, but it is priced for quick sale, and USPS Priority mail shipping is FREE!
