One Good Eye Silver
(607) 651 9565
SOLD - Thank you!
|A rather rare to find and hence avidly sought after classic early 20th c. silver bracelet, this piece is made up of repousse semi-barrels, each one of them linked to a specific month in our calendar year. The months are equated with their most representative fruit, vegetable or flower and their respective semi-barrels also bear the first letter of that month's name. A European piece judging by its hallmarks, it seems to me that the specific genre was usually imported in the States (?); these bracelets don't surface frequently and the only other vintage example I recently saw had been crafted in the Middle East and had already sold... Having a 7 1/8" inner circumference the bracelet is 1" wide and weighs 40.7 grams. It is signed "PERFEITOS" (?) partially stamped and also hallmarked for origin (I tend to think Spain or Portugal?) and silver content but illegibly. Guaranteed to be of at least 900 silver, it dates in the 1920s-40s and is in excellent vintage with only a couple of very very light impressions in the fruits of one semi-barrel.|
