Vintage 1930's Sterling Silver and Abalone Fish Link Bracelet.
Bracelet measures 1/2" (12mm) wide and 6 3/4" long.
Weight: 11.33 grams
The amazing thing about abalone is how the colors never fade with time...there are a couple of very minor nicks to the inlay and I have not over-polished the silver "frames" of the fish, preferring to leave it's natural age intact.
**Please note that some areas that appear to chips, are actually the way that the colors of the abalone come together - double click on pics for close up view**
The clasp is a simple hook clasp, so I would recommend a tighter fit.
Bracelet is marked "Sterling" "925" "Made in Mexico" dating it to the 1930's and early to mid 1940's. The eagle stamp was implemented in 1948 and the 925 marking became more common around the mid 1920's.
