This lovely expandable Carmen Sweetheart Bracelet by D. F. Briggs Company has double sky blue hearts made of glass as its center focus. The hearts are collet set inside highly detailed golden hearts and connected to a beautifully detailed expandable band.(much like the watch bands of today, but so much more elegant) On the inside we find the company markings of:
THE D.F.B. CO.
MADE IN U.S.A.
4 X O.
Each of the previous lines is on a separate link, and the last line is upside down to the rest of the lettering.
This bracelet slides over the hand, but the band is small sized. Made for a 5 to 7 inch wrist and expands to about 7.5inches. (I have a 7 inch wrist, and it fit nicely.) The expansion joints work well and form an oval when opened, so it looks good at any point of it's reach. (I would show you a picture of it on my arm, but old lady skin is not what anyone wants to see here. ;-) )
These bracelets were first made as far back as the early 1900's for children, but became popular during the First World War and were popular throughout the Second World War as well for soldiers to give to their Sweethearts. The bracelet here in my shop comes from the WWII time frame, and while some were gold plated, this one is done in a gold wash around the two hearts.
Condition is Very Good Vintage, The band is in excellent shape with no links missing, no scratches or dents. The metal is bright, and as I said above it opens and closes nicely too. However there is some wear on the top of the hearts and the bottom tips. It shows as a slight darkening of the metal, and is not a detractor to the overall look of the piece. It isn't any thing you would not expect from an item of this age. Stones are bright and clear and show no sign of scratches or marks.
