Heavy Sterling Silver Hinge Bracelet Ornate Handmade 1943
This old ornate silver hinge bracelet is covered with raised filigree domes, dotted with many little raised silver beads. Larger silver beads edge each side of the bracelet.
This is a heavy silver bracelet weighing 68 grams (2.4 ounces). It measures 1 inch wide with an inner circumference of 7 1/4 inches around. The bracelet tests for sterling. It closes with a pin, attached via chains so it can't be lost.
Most interesting we think, is the etched faint inscription inside...Millie - Xmas - '43. There's also a longer number below. We think this bracelet was a 'sweetheart bracelet', a gift from a soldier during WWII. The workmanship on the bracelet displays silver crafting of old world skill.
It wasn't till we saw our photos blown up that we noticed that a few of the little silver beads were missing. This was not obvious to the eyes at all because overall condition of this bracelet appears to be excellent.
This is a very interesting and unusual bracelet. It has its unique provenance and we can assume that on Christmas of 1943, Millie was a very happy girl.
