It's stood the test of time and still looks fantastic, is fully hallmarked for Sterling Silver and was made in the English town of Birmingham in the year 1883.
The back of the bangle is plain polished Silver whilst the front is crammed full of fantastic period details.
It really is a feast for the eyes, with detailed hand engraving and a beautiful beaded edge which is so typical of Victorian jewellery!
As with all Victorian aesthetic jewellery it's a perfectly balanced design between striking forms and solid construction, paired with feminine and beguiling decorations.

VERY GOOD: In extraordinary condition for a Victorian aesthetic bangle of this age! The hinge and clasp are both strong and snap shut tight with a satisfying "click"! The front of the bangle is as near to perfect as you could ask of a bangle that's 133 years old. It has a small ding here but all the pretty floral engravings are beautiful and hide this small imperfection. All the "beads" on the beaded edge are also in good condition, which is very rare indeed. Quite often we find these with damaged or missing beads. These are all intact save for a small pinhole in the top of two of them. There is also a lovely patina to the Silver, showing off the age of the piece and making the details really pop!
