Victorian Silver Buckle Bracelet
I am a great fan of buckle brackets and have several, from different eras, in my personal collection. This is a beautiful Victorian silver version with chased floral and foliate motifs on the front and a lovely sweeping tail of the "belt". It was purchased in England and is marked "800" on the hinge and clasp. There are no other hallmarks on the bracelet.
SIZE: One nice feature of the bracelet is that its a decent size for a Victorian bracelet (many of them are miniscule) and will fit smallish through medium sized wrists. The interior opening is 2-3/8" wide x 1-7/8" deep. It is 11/16" wide with the sweep of the tail totaling 1-1/4".
AGE: Second half of 19th century.
CONDITION: The bracelet has had some loving wear and some nicely-done old repairs. The protruding "tail" has clearly been bent in the past and been straightened but a little kinking to the metal is visible as is two small tears in this area. It may have also been re-soldered on the back side along with the hinge. There was a tear to the silver near the buckle and this too has been neatly soldered. There is also a slight kink in the silver at the clasp. Having said all this, the bracelet is still very beautiful and should be wearable for many more generations to come.
Gender: Unisex, Age Group: Adult, Color: Silver, Size: M
