This charming, short bracelet is French and from the first half of the twentieth century. It is marked ‘Fix’, a company founded in 1823 with a secret formula for this type of 18 carat gold filled jewellery. It is finished with a medallion.
The French are very familiar with the concept of elegant gold filled jewellery. The designs and quality are generally so good that they are hard to tell from their solid gold counterparts.
The bracelet measures 6½” (16cms) long so is suitable for a narrow wrist.It is 6mms wide.
The bracelet has oval whirls along its length. It closes with a ring clasp. The medallion measures 11/16” (1.7cms) across. It features an image of Raphael’s angel on one side and a floral stem on the other.
This lovely bracelet is in fine vintage condition. It will arrive in a gift box.
