Rare Chanel Couture Signed Cuff Bangle Bracelet-1950/1960s-goossens - Immaculate For Sale
It is extremely rare to find a signed Chanel piece from the 1950’s-1960’s period but to find one like this in what can honestly be described as near perfect condition is quite amazing. If you look in the reviews and guides to dating Chanel costume jewellery you will find the following information: 1950’s through 1960’s; Gabriel re-opened her boutique on Rue Cambon in 1954. As previously, much of her costume jewellery was designed and produced to accompany her clothing. Along with the chains she used on the hems of her jackets to weight them properly, necklaces, earrings and brooches (most notably the camellia flower) were included and sold with each outfit. In the 50’s and early 60’s, many of Chanel’s costume jewellery pieces were designed by the young and talented Robert Goossens. The majority of pieces from this time period are marked simply as CHANEL, usually stamped directly on the piece itself (as is this cuff).
The design is that of a double tiered effect with CHANEL PARIS on the top tier and PARIS CHANEL on the bottom tier. Note the use of the tiny camellia flower in the decoration. As previously stated the cuff is in near perfect condition with a deep rich gold plated finish and is a very heavy, substantial piece. Any bleaching or marks in the photos is from camera shine.
MEASUREMENTS:- If you are buying this as an investment that is fine but if you are buying this to wear then take note that, as with most Chanel cuffs, this is sized as SMALL. I do not offer a return option if this does not fit as I am providing the measurements so please take note before purchasing.

Final note_ I have only ever seen 1 of these come up for sale previously in the USA where it sold for in excess of $2000!!
