This amazing antique heavy cast silver bracelet cuff features lily like flowers, perhaps gentian, framed by large leaf fronds culminating in a single freely turning twisted link in the center. There are no markings. the metal tests positive for silver content of sterling grade. It has an internal circumference, including the wrist gap opening, of at least 6.75" The opening gap is 1.5". This bracelet is too large for my 6" wrist, and I find I have to push it up on my arm for it to stay in place. That point on my arm is about 7.5" around, so I feel that it can fit a 7.5" wrist size.
Gentian flowers are common in the Alps. This bracelet may have originally been from that region of Europe, as part of a local folk costume.
This hefty bracelet weighs 122.9 gr. The band has a maximum width of 1.375". Inside diameters are is 2.625" x 1.75".
Condition is good.
I think you will be amazed when you hold this bracelet in your hand. It is heavy and inflexible. You will not see another like it anytime soon.
