Want a bracelet as Art Deco as the Chrysler Building? Here's one that's sure to win raves with any outfit from jeans up!
About 1.5 inches wide and highly dimensional, this bold and sophisticated cuff is fashioned of top-quality brass - far weightier stuff than most brass today. That's what allowed it to survive in such marvelous condition. Its outer surface gleams, having been polished occasionally through the years, but the rich patina within its decorative recesses and on the reverse argues firmly for a dating between 1925 and 1935. I'd bet on the front end of that range, since the bracelet is European, probably from France, where Deco design appeared early under the moniker Moderne. Either way, it's antique by American 75-year standards.
Since it can be expanded or compressed at will (carefully, please), the bracelet should fit just about anyone. Please be cautious also about polishing, avoiding chemical dips that would strip the patina out of those wonderful radiator-like grooves. A gentle hand and a gentle cream or polishing cloth will protect its beauty and value.
