Very interesting vintage French statement size cuff bracelet in what feels like black suede (or possibly Ultrasuede) with large prong set stones, tiny gold glass beads at each end, and fine gold metal chain weaving between the stones, and with embroidered edges. With a magnetic clasp in goldtone metal with tiny brilliant strass stones on each end. The large stones feel like Lucite. This piece is typical of the type of French couture jewelry made by Lina Baretti for various designers, in unusual materials such as fabric, feathers, and suede, and using detailed dressmaking techniques. Also similar to Henry a la Pensee jewelry. 7 1/4 inches wearable length and 2 inches wide. Excellent condition. Slight scratching to clasp. Photos enlarged to show detail. Display form is life size.
