Here is another of the gold filled bangles from the collection of gold filled bangles I recently acquired. It is by S.O. Bigney of Attleboro, Massachusetts. The company was founded in 1879; Colonel Bigney bought out his partner in 1894 and began using his own mark on his jewelry. It is marked as shown in the photos on an open end of the bangle. This gold filled bangle has a chased design on the entire bangle, front and back along with a cartouche in the center that has no monogram. The bangle is oval in shape with an interior diameter on the longest oval side of 2 and 1/2". There is no mark for gold filled content nor a slide making it the earliest bangle in the collection, 19th century, as both of those characteristics belong to the 20th century. There are no dents, dings nor wear to the gold fill. ant black marks you might see in the photos are just from the angles of the photo. There are none on the bangle. The clasp and hinge are in perfect tight working order. There is a slight scratch near the button, probably either from a gold content test or a scratch from opening the bangle over the years. I have HIGHLY magnified it so you can see it, but it is extremely hard to see otherwise unless you use a loupe. The bangle is almost 1/2" in width; I measure it at 7/16" , 1/16 shy of 1/2". It is a beautiful early bangle in outstanding condition, one that you will want to add to your own collection as it looks lovely by itself or could be stacked with others. It would also make a wonderful gift for a special person who loves these early gold filled bangles and the look of another era.
