Rare and lovely late 1800's Lion bracelet by Lazar Finberg. This wonderful find features a hinged oval shaped band with a soldered top of a raised lion head with ruby color eyes and darkened gray color stone in it's mouth and ornate open cut and etched work design. Thumb press open has a snug secure fit. It has a couple of age issues there is plate wear on both edges of the top plates solder points and a small part of the band. NOTE- I recently used 18 K gold leaf paint to cover the very dark spots on sides, color not exact match but does look better. Please refer to last 3 photo's to see currant condition, which is also done in blown up micro for best viewing and will appear slightly exaggerated from true condition in person. The hinged side has a small dent, minor normal scratches,. one slightly deep scratch but on the inside and not seen, however, it is otherwise in very good condition with even shine and crisp detail on the lion. Photo's are in extreme close up to define described issues and may also have shadows from the camera. Marked on the inside of the band FMCo and the rare edition of two star shape symbols. I couldn't track down the stars meaning but have never seen them on another FMCO piece. It may be a metal grade symbol normally connected to silver or gold. Tested positive for gold filled or above.
Measures Inside diameter 2 1/2 by 2'.W Band is 1/4'W. Lion plate is 2'L and 3/4'W
