Arts & Crafts Silver & Enamel Celtic Bracelet By Alexander Ritchie, Iona For Sale
Very rare silver & enamel bracelet by Alexander Ritchie of Iona. The links are a Celtic entrelac design with guilloche enamel centres, and with intertwined birds' heads at each end. It is marked A.R. and IONA on both end links. There are no hallmarks, which indicates that it is one of Ritchie's earlier pieces, probably before 1910. I have never seen or heard of another Ritchie bracelet, let alone one with enamel, apart from the illustration of an identical one in the Ritchie book ('Iona Celtic Art' by Mairi MacArthur), so this is extremely rare. It is in excellent condition, with no missing enamel, and the catch (which is marked 'Sterling') works well. Length 7 1/2" (19cm). Payment or contact within 48 hours of end of sale, please.
