Very scarce antique mid Victorian 14k solid yellow gold black taille d' epargne enamel and pearl memento mori mourning wide oval hinged cuff bracelet. Measures 7/8" wide, with an outside circumference of 7-1/2", inside circumference of 6-1/4", 2.6mm in thickness, 7/8" width, and weight of 40 grams (26 dwt pennyweights, 1.42 ounces). Hinged cuff with tongue in groove clasp and original safety chain. The center is accented by a single 4.3mm diameter pearl set into a flower shaped mount that is hand engraved on the petals. The sides of the bracelet surrounding the hinge assembly is hand engraved with lovely patterned vermicelli in an hour glass shaped station. The piece is completely original with no repairs. The condition is spectacular, only the very slightest traces of age appropriate wear, truly remarkable for its age. As expected and typical of authentic Victorian jewels, particularly those hand crafted such as this bracelet, the bracelet is not hallmarked. It has been carefully tested by two separate bench jewelers and is guaranteed minimum 14k solid gold in content/purity. The bracelet hinge mechanism and clasp is in outstanding order and opens and closes securely and with a nice solid snap and has an easy to operate thick prominent button latch. The safety chain measures 2-7/8" in length. A very rare piece made even scarcer by virtue of its exceptional condition, circa mid Victorian, 1840-1860s.
