Antique Etruscan Revival 14K Gold Bracelet

A very fine 14 karat gold antique Victorian Etruscan Revival hinged bangle bracelet, c. 1860 ~ 70.

It is oval in form and features the desirable intricate pattern detail and minute beaded granulation of the Etruscan motif.

The bracelet is not hallmarked, but tested 14K.  This result was confirmed by an independent jeweler test.

Inside bangle is lightly monogrammed in a fancy period script; C.M.B.

The bracelet is fairly good sized.  Inch measurements are indicated above, but in case it may be helpful (easier to hold a mm gauge up to wrist) here is the approximate (inside) millimeter sizes;  Length = 55 mm, Width = 43 mm.

The bracelet is in overall good condition. It retains it's original oval shape and has not been bent out of alignment. Hinge appears to be original and works perfectly.  Safety chain is present.

Commensurate with age and gentle use we did however note a couple of minor issues. 1) Top two links of safety chain appear to be darker than other links.  2) The bracelet does appear to have been dinged on one side, in the middle area, (not near the pattern detail) and this was subsequently repaired, although it is still very slightly visible if you examine closely.   3)  There appears to be an old solder repair, near the inside edge by the clasp. (where the two bracelet halves meet)  Nothing evident on the exterior of the bracelet, just on the inside, which of course is not visible if it is being worn.  We have tried to show this in the picture. Lastly and slightly more significant; while viewing our photographs at a very magnified size we noticed for the first time, a very tiny 1-2 mm edge split, that was not visible to our eye without the magnification.  It is located on the edge, between the push button clasp and the safety chain.  Please see close up image.  This is easily repairable, requiring a simple solder. Some dealers may not have even mentioned several of the above items, but it is our policy to fully disclose anything noted, even if the piece is almost 150 years old, as is this bracelet.  Additionally, we have taken condition into consideration when pricing.

Without question, Etruscan revival jewelry examples are becoming harder
to find, especially solid gold pieces.
