Vintage 1940's Hobe Victorian Revival Red Glass Filigree Bracelet For SaleVintage 1940's Hobe Victorian Revival Red Glass Filigree Bracelet This sale is for a beautifully designed and colorful, victorian revival glass bracelet, that was made by Hobe during the 1940's.This piece is silvertone with a gold wash and is not signed but was made by Hobe. The bracelet is 7"", it is a bit fuller than 3/4" wide at its widest point, and has a substantial weight and feel at 48 grams. The bracelet closes securely with its original hidden push clasp (that is finished with a clear glass cab) and has a safety chain that is original to the piece. This bracelet has lovely jeweled colors of clear, red, and pink glass cabochons. The setting is accented with tiny filigree leaves and the glass cabs are in different sizes and shape so the bracelet has a lot of texture and visual interest. The largest glass cab is 10.5mm in diameter, and is thicker and domed in shape, jutting out from the rest of the glass cabs. The glass is all faceted and it is all open at the back so the piece has a lot of light and different types of refraction. The glass is all original to the piece and there are no missing stones. I count 7 chipped stones, three of them are the pink stones, some of the chips are quite small and some of the chips are significant that effect the shape of the cabochon. There is one red glass cab that is chipped but it is small and at the side of the cabochon. Having said that due to the style of the piece and the faceting it is noticeable only upon inspection and not as the piece is worn. The glass is still quite fresh looking with smooth surfaces and a high sheen and the facets are crisp and refractive. There are no irregularities to the setting, no solder or repair, just some wear to the gold wash showing the silvertone underneath which is a minimal amount and noticeable only upon inspection. Having said that it is a modest amount and the piece has a nice patina that still enhances the color of the glass. Overall this is a beautifully designed and colorful, Victorian revival glass bracelet, that was made by Hobe during the 1940's that is in Excellent condition.
