Own a piece of fashion history with this brushed gold-tone enamel cobra bracelet from Hattie Carnegie.
What we love about Hattie Carnegie pieces is their very identifiable, unique designs.
We especially love the fact that it was only an era. Once these are gone, they are gone.
She did not sell out to other companies to perpetuate her lines or essence. She was all about keeping her designs pure and original.
Yes, she could have gone commercial, but, bless her heart, she kept it pure.
Her Egyptian revival line is considered one of the most collectible designs. This is no exception.
Hinged at the bottom, the bracelet opens at the top where the cobras' heads meet.
A dance of complementary shades of red, navy, and sap green are woven together to create the perfect item of Egyptian style jewelry.
There are some light wear marks in the enamel as well as light wear to the gold plating, but overall, the piece is in good condition and will make the ideal addition to your vintage jewelry collection.
This is a definite collector's piece for the discriminating buyer of only high quality, investment pieces of designer signed costume and period jewelry.
It is certainly wearable. It belongs to someone that has a complete appreciation for the history of this little window of amazing and trailblazing, powerful and successful women in an oppressive era in which they not only succeeded, but surpassed all of the gender bias in fashion and business.
Hats off to you, Miss Hattie. Applause all around.
Fits up to a size 7 – 7 ½" wrist, and measures ¾" wide.
