GOOD-VERY GOOD. A characterful antique "dragon's breath" Silver bracelet with bundles of charm. Her links are all securely connected and her Silver has accrued a gorgeous patina over its lifetime. The glass stones retain a vibrance of hue and are smooth to the touch. Two of the stones are somewhat cracked, but this is not noticeable unless upon close inspection. There is light wear to the Silver throughout, commensurate with age, but this doesn't detract from her allure! She has clearly been well-loved in her previous life, but this doesn't mean that she hasn't got plenty of life in her yet.
