A scarce Victorian era sterling silver matching pair of engraved link bracelets, both with matching British patent registry diamond shape marks and dated 1881. These antique silver bracelets measure 6-3/4" long and 1" wide; both have safety chains ans snap catches. These antique English silver bracelets have thick hollow tubes linking two outer bands of oval links with fine engraving, and a central smooth row of links. They are quite hard find in the original matched pairs now.
Silver jewellery was the jewellery of choice for 19thC women who had some means or who worked. It was affordable, but was not considered as showy as gold, more appropriate for the serious minded. These bracelets were often worn with the wonderful Victorian lockets with the same type of ornate chain. The bracelets are actually scarcer now than the lockets.
This pair is in very good original condition with no scrapes, monograms, bends, corrosion or losses. Each bracelet has some very minor and small shallow denting on some links and some minor denting to a few of the tubes on the outer edges; one has a professionally repaired clasp and both have had a few hollow tubes soldered to the next links for stability (not affecting the wearing of the bracelets), but they show well and look great on. All items are thoroughly and conservatively graded and all condition issues are noted; all items are vintage or antique and may have slight signs of gentle use.
