A pristine example of an unsigned Art Deco era gilt filigree and Czechoslovakian glass bracelet, circa 1920s-1930s. With a trio of scissor cut topaz glass stones, zigzag pronged and open back set, flanked by bezel set triangular topaz glass end stones, the bracelet has all the characteristics of Czech work. In the '20s and through the '30s Victorian Revival designs were immensely popular, particularly in Europe. Gilt filigree metal was set with the finest Czech glass stones. While the flavor was romantic Victorian , you can see elements of stark Art Deco, particularly in the triangular end stones. The bracelet appears to be completely correct with proper links, connections, stones and closure.
The five link bracelet measures about 7 inches x 3/4 inch x 3/16 inch with a spring ring closure. The rectangular stones are approximately 14 millimeters x 11 millimeters. Weight of the bracelet is about 16 grams.
Condition is excellent / pristine vintage. All components appear original and are intact. Stones free from chips, cracks or breaks. All gilt finish intact, front and back. No dents or improper bends to metal work. Clasp secure. No damage / no repairs. Extremely clean. Pristine vintage.
The bracelet is unsigned, as much of this work was. Fine filigree work, superb glass stones, proper connections and clasp (including double wired jump ring closure) as well as overall design, and workmanship attribute the bracelet to Czechoslovakian craftsmen.
The dawn of costume jewelry. Rise and shine with the best from Gablonz and the republic for which it stood. Czech it out at Cody's.
