|Very substantial yet still discrete and classy this is a Spratling creation dating in the 1940-46 period as indicated by the combination of hallmarks it bears. It is formed by three rows of "puffy", pillow-like repousse links flexibly held together with hidden pins. The fold-over clasp also blends in the design when you have it on. At 76.9 grams the bracelet weighs around the wrist in a warm, familiar way feeling comfortable and not at all overwhelming. Beautifully crafted and distinctly sculptural, the links create a strong light-and-shadow effect that brings the design's three-dimensional quality to the fore. Measuring a wearable 7 1/2" long by 1" wide it is marked on two oval disks applied on the back. In very good vintage condition with gorgeous patina, powerful presence and no repairs or replacements. A couple of old impressions in the repousse but nothing offensive to the eye.|
