Sought after American sterling mark. This 76 gram large highly ornate bracelet for the small wrist stamped: PERUZZI BOSTON STERLING on the ornate wide "J" hook so seen on the pieces from the GINO M. PERUZZI Jewel Shop of Boylston St. Boston, MA, was made nearby during the 2nd quarter of the 20th century. Richly ornate showing a person sitting in the yoga lotus form with a multitude of flowers.
This is for someone who does not mind being noticed! A super gift for the bracelet collector.
Maker's mark: image 3 and 6.
Center station is 3" X 2 1/4". The other two stations are 2 1/4".
Nice heft: 2.6 oz. Smallish 6 1/4" around interior.
Very good vintage preowned condition with lots of rich darkening in the crevices.
Gino M. boxes are very rarely found in local antique shops. In these parts one hears stories about the Parenti sister and a Peruzzi brother who came to America in the 20s or 30s. Anyone who claims that these USA pieces are not as 'fine' as those made by the vintage or current European counterparts or as fine as Cini's (also currently made by his descendents)), has not owned enough Boston Made ones such as this one here. This bracelet demonstrate a rich collectible arts crafts/'studio' flavor!
PS, another collector who frequented both jewelers' stores (located side by side on Boylston St) said that they were known to produce quite unusual, rivalry driven work back in the mid 20th century. Needless to say, here it is a joy to offer the vintage Bost* made pieces when they become available.
