Unusual in its combination of figural and luscious floral links this is an early Deco Flli Peruzzi Italian silver bracelet, possibly a memento of a young lady’s Grand Tour of Europe. Famous for their Renaissance Revival jewelry, the Peruzzi Bros are one of the oldest jewelers in Italy and still in operation today yet it is their vintage pieces that are avidly sought after. Here della Robia’s “swaddled baby” from the Ospedale degli Innocenti in Florence is complemented by beautifully cast hibiscus links…
