Classic Renoir signed Shadows Copper Open Cuff Vintage Bracelet Book Piece.
This vintage Renoir cuff bracelet is called "Shadows."
Modernist jewelers would enhance their pieces by applying a dark patina. “When you solder copper, of course it has a black area around it, but they artificially added it for greater visual interest, If you buy this jewelry, and it looks like there’s a black shadow on it, don’t polish it off!”
It is pictured in "Copper Art Jewelry: A Different Lustre" on page 120
The Copper Bracelet is covered with thin copper lines raised over a soldered black base that produces the highly sought after shadow effect.
Signed "Renoir". Circa 1950.
It measures approx 6 1/2" x 1 1/2", it is open so can fit most wrists.
