The marrying of sterling silver with 18K gold is a favorite in vintage jewelry from Peru yet this bracelet is a rare opportunity to own an enameled piece that combines sterling and 18k figural appliques. Made by Old Cuzco, one of the best names in vintage Peruvian jewelry, this is indeed a rare bracelet. Though from time to time one will find smaller enameled examples, like brooches or pendants, enameled necklaces and bracelets are truly difficult to come upon.
The bracelet at hand measures 6 3/4" long (wearable) by 1 3/8" wide and weighs 57.6 grams. It is signed "OLD CUZCO" as well as "18K" and "925" and dates in the 1950s-60s period. In very good vintage condition with minimal wear of the enamel around the edge of some links; not offensive at all, I think it rather adds character than takes away from the bracelet's beauty.
