This vintage Egyptian Revival silver wide cuff bracelet is repousse’ stamped all around with images of kings, queens, symbols and letters.
The cuff measures 1 3/16” high at the front and tapers to about ½” at the ends. The back opening is 1 ¼” (though you can adjust it a bit smaller or larger to suit you) and the width across the inside is 2 1/2”.
This will fit a larger wrist or could be worn higher up on the forearm or upper arm on a slender woman. In the center are raised heads of a King Tut’s sarcophagus, Cleopatra, another king with headdress
(perhaps Ramses), and Nefertiti. Small Egyptian letters are stamped on the background.
Symbols on each side panel include an ankh, chariot with rider, flail, snake and Egyptian letters. The background of the cuff is intentionally patinated (oxidized) to accentuate the raised images.
The hallmarks on the end include the mark for Egyptian 80 silver punch-mark (the bracelet tests just under American sterling in purity), the Egyptian Lotus silver mark (first used in 1946) and the date code, which we believe is for 1949-1951.
Condition is very fine. Total weight is approximately 30 grams. Please see our other listing for an Egyptian silver cuff arm bracelet with scarab and hieroglyphics.
