This darling antique French Silver bangle is just as beautiful today as it would have been when it was first made, at the turn of the 20th century circa 1900!
The bangle features a whimsical embossed design of ivy leaves and sweet little berries all the way around. When you look closely the fine detail achieved is staggering - especially when you think it was made over 100 years ago.
This pretty antique bangle is hinged so it easy to get on quickly so it's a great choice when you need to just "grab and go!". Despite its great age, it's a sturdy bangle, made better still by an original safety chain so you can wear it daily, safe in the knowledge it is secure.
As antique bangles go this one is beautiful, practical and neither too light nor too heavy! The open-work sections add an elegance which is hard to describe, but easy to see!
This gorgeous Art Nouveau design is completely unique and would make a gorgeous gift for any occasion.

VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT: A stunning antique French Silver bangle in fantastic condition. The only sign of a previous life is that the bangle is ever so slightly out of round, but as the bangle is subtly flexible we don't think this is such a bad thing. The hinge and clasp are in good working order and close tightly and securely. The safety chain is original and still strong, with no stretched or weak links. The best thing about this bangle is undoubtedly the gorgeous ivy leaf design which would make an amazing gift for someone of almost any age.
