Berlin iron items, including jewellery, were much in favour in Germany in the early 19th century during wars with Napoleon. Wealthy citizens were encouraged to donate their gold and silver jewellery and it was replaced with elegant Berlin iron examples. This fabulous bracelet would have been one of these. It includes the most delicate “lacework” medallions with a cameo oval depicting a lady’s head and bust as the main feature. This has a polished steel backing. The bracelet closes with a simple locking mechanism which is still functional. The piece is complete with no missing or broken components. The condition is excellent for age although there is some slight tarnish of the polished steel around the cameo but this is not unusual. This is a wonderful example of this exquisite and highly collectible style of jewellery. It is of museum quality and would grace any collection. Insured Air Mail Post with tracking and signature on delivery to the USA would be $110.00 USD. For shipping cost to other countries, please contact us. Maximum length open 7.25 ins (18.4cm) and would fit a wrist circumference of 7 ins (17.8cm) comfortably. Weight 34 grams.
