Antique English Victorian Sterling Silver Hinged Bangle Bracelet-hm 1884 For Sale
Offered . .......
a fine antique English Victorian sterling silver bangle bracelet.
The piece is hallmarked for sterling silver, Birmingham England, and the maker's mark S. BROS is for Sydenham Bros. This wide hinged bangle features applied floral designs along with engraving on the front half. As was typical, the back half is plain. The bracelet was made in 1884, but 108 years later, British parents gave it as a gift to their daughter to celebrate her excellent performance at school. It is engraved on the inside with Congratulations Jennie on your A Level Success 20th August 1992 Love, Mom and Dad !
The bracelet is over 1 inch wide, and weighs over 1 troy ounce. The clasp holds securely, but there is a safety chain for peace of mind. The bracelet would fit a
6 3/8 inch wrist. There are minor dings on the backside and one on the edge, and there is a small leaf missing from the front-very difficult to notice without magnification.

Please note: Whenever possible, we try to gently hand polish our silver pieces. This provides you with two important benefits. First, it is difficult to see damage through years of patina. Sellers who tell you that they will leave cleaning or polishing to you are either afraid of uncovering damage, or simply don't want to invest the time and effort necessary to clean and polish the pieces. It is difficult enough to purchase items that you cannot first hold in your hand. We believe that this should not be compounded by having you peer at items through 100-200 years of grime. Secondly, YOU do not have to polish the item when you receive it! If we inadvertently miss a defect of any significance, please let us know right away so we can make it right.
