Vtg 1940's Victorian Revival Hobe Pink Art Glass Filigree 1.25" Wide Bracelet For Sale
Vtg 1940's Victorian Revival Hobe Pink Art Glass Filigree 1.25" Wide 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 has an inside circumference of 6 1/2", it is 1.25" wide at its widest point, and has a substantial weight and feel at 71 grams. The bracelet closes securely with its original hidden push clasp (that is finished with a clear glass cab) and has a safety chain but its not original to the piece. This bracelet has lovely jeweled colors of clear, periwinkle blue, and pink glass cabochons. The pink glass cabs are in two different shades which is a subtle but nice design detail that enhances the "jewel" look. The setting is accented with tiny filigree leaves, and the glass cabs are in different sizes and shapes, so the bracelet has a lot of texture and visual interest. The larges glass cab is 10mm in diameter, and is thicker and domed in shape, jutting out from the rest of the glass cabs. The pink stones are the only stones that are faceted, all of the glass is 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, there are no missing stones, and there are no chipped glass cabs. The glass is very fresh looking with smooth surfaces and a high sheen. The central pink large glass cabochon has a tiny bit of scratching at the very top, and it looks like the glass has a little bit of irregularity and a "fissure" in the middle, but it is noticeable only on inspection and the glass is smooth to the touch. There are no irregularities to the setting, no solder or repair, just some wear to the gold wash showing the silvertone underneath and a little bit of darkening and discoloration in a few spots. 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.There are many more beautiful pieces up for sale this month so please view my other items for the full selection.Shipping All jewelry is carefully wrapped and shipped in boxes to ensure that your vintage piece arrives safely.
