This circa 1910 bangle has a lovely combination of patterns giving it a very attractive tailored but still feminine appearance. The edge rims are comprised of a border with minute un-patterned edges and a tiny indent box center giving a dot pattern look to the rims. Between the rims is a 3/32" wide open work area containing a running repeating pattern of alternating long ovals and diamond shapes. It is a lovely shade of yellow gold, somewhat bright but not gaudy!
The gold is in excellent minus condition with no rips, holes, dents, nasty scratches/abrasions, broken or missing open work or repairs noted. All of the patterns are very crisp thru out the entire bangle. This is a true bangle, it does not open, but must slide on and off. With close inspection you can find a spot of light uneven flow (approx. 1/32") to the bracelet's pattern rim that I am assuming is from the bangle being gripped/wiggled on and off. This form of natural wear can often be found in a bangle. With close inspection you can also see the joint where the bangle was originally gold soldered together. Photo # 4 shows three different angles of the joint. The bangle is nicely in round being just an approx. 1/16" off making the interior circle measurement 2 5/16" and 2 6/16" (2 3/8).
The bangle has no marks so Rich has acid tested and will guarantee a minimum of 14kt. The width of the bangle is 3/16" and it weighs 7 grams. A lovely bangle that will go well on it's own or stack with a few others.
