Hallmark: 800 or 600?

Size:  Length = 7 inches, Width = 1 inch
Quantity:  1

A very interesting early hallmarked silver bracelet.  I have never seen one quite like this, so it is a little hard to date, but I believe it is Victorian or turn of the century, apx; 1880 ~ 1910.

It is certainly an interesting design, made something like an early watch or slide chain, but this has clearly always been a bracelet, is has not been converted from something else.

The bracelet is in extremely nice condition.  We see no problems at all with any of the links, the slide bead or the ball, just a possible early, tiny repair to the chain, which typical to this type of chain, also shows a little wear here and there.

The bracelet is quite good sized; a generous seven inch inside measurement when closed with the slide ball clasp.

The band of the bracelet is comprised of inter-linked, three dimensional sections, that really sparkle. Attached to the links are fancy terminators, from which the chains connect, with the large ball affixed at the bottom.  The smaller ball, or bead, is moveable; it slides up and down the chain and is what functions as a clasp.  This clasp is a little tricky to operate, as you must slide two little rosettes at the top of the chain, down into the slide bead.  I have managed to get these aligned just right on a couple of occasions and it does work, but it may take some patience.  If I was going to wear this bracelet regularly I would just attach a spring ring, or something similar, at the top two links.

Also, I am not sure, but the large ball at the bottom may open.  It appears to be seamed in the middle and looks like it might unscrew, or otherwise come apart, however I have never figured that out.

A very interesting, antique hallmarked silver bracelet.
