According to author Judith Miller in her 2003 Costume Jewelry Collector's guide, Sandor jewelry is known for its 'artistry and craftsmanship'. She adds 'The fact that it is also rare makes it highly collectible.'. We can attest to that as we don't often find it among our many estate jewelry buys.
This Sandor bracelet has a great Victorian look. The hinged bangle is silver-tone metal with raised repousse like scroll work all around. Within each feathery embossing is a flower with white enameling. These circle the bracelet against a blackened niello background.
The bracelet measures 1/2 inch wide. It's 7 1/4 inches around the inside. The slide-in clasp closes securely and there's a safety chain too. Through a magnifier, we can see some age-related wear in a few spots and a few spots of verdigris... none of which is noticed without the magnification. The quality of the design and workmanship of the bracelet adds to its hard-to-find name...SANDOR, marked on a plaque at the hinge. Circa 1950s. Excellent vintage condition.
