Vintage 1940's Wide Goldtone Mesh and Faux Pearl Fringed Bracelet.
My favorite style of vintage bracelet and if it was a little bigger, I'm not sure that I could part with it. At 1 1/8" (28mm) wide with a raised, leaf, faux pearl focal clasp and flowing fringe, it's definitely eye catching! I have seen this bracelet attributed to a noted designer on a few occasions (see the end of the listing) but I do not believe that is the case. This particular designer's bracelet was slightly different in stone usage and it was signed, which this is not. Some designers contracted out their designs to manufacturers and it's quite possible that one of those manufacturers made a slightly different version of the bracelet. Which would make it a copy, done during the same time period.
It does have some age to it, with slight variations in the color of the mesh, that only show in certain lighting and the center faux pearl appears to have been reglued at some point. I have tried to remove some the very old, dried glue overflow (only immediately surrounding the center bead) but it's difficult without harming the finish and/or dislodging the bead or the surrounding beads. A slightly blue enamel base beneath the smaller faux pearls is slightly faded overall but gives the pearls a blue hue to the camera's eye, to the naked eye they are white. These not an overtly noticeable flaws, as you can see from the photo. I have however, priced it accordingly.
