A stunner of a bracelet, this piece is one of the best in the “buckle” genre I have seen not so much for its ornamentation but because of its magnificent proportions and the heftiness of its applique elements. Generously wide, it has a “frame-and-double-prong” shape with channel-set beading, oxidation and twist-rope accents. Enhanced by the wonderful patina it has acquired, the bracelet’s layered construction makes a strong visual impression. I am not exactly sure if it’s a late Victorian / Edwardian piece or an early Deco example…
