|This bracelet is so lavishly decorated that words are really lacking to describe it with justice. It is a true Art Nouveau period piece circa 1915-1920s. Art Nouveau was an important, avant-garde movement that appeared at the turn of the 20th century whose principle was that nature rather than the ancient classicist should be the foundation of all art. The entire surface of the bracelet is covered with opulent Art Nouveau patterns of flowers, flourishes, and in the center, a raised design of an iris. The craftsmanship on the bracelet is superb and it is still in great condition. It has a snap closure that works well and closes with a strong, snap. It measures 1-3/4 tall at the center of the front and tapers to ¾ the rest of the way around. It is approximately 7-1/4 inside circumference. It is an extraordinary bracelet and one that will steal the show. As with all antique and vintage jewelry, you must take care of it to preserve it as well as it has been thus far.|
