ERA: Victorian (1837-1901)
MEASUREMENTS: The total internal circumference measures 6.75" / 17cm
The width of the band is 8mm, with the rounded ends measuring 15mm.
MATERIALS: 800 Silver
HALLMARKS: "800" Silver, a rare lozenge style patent mark: "1, 9, 14, R, L, D".
The hallmark here is an unusual one unique to English items. The lozenge or "KiteMark" doesn't give us the year an item was made or stamped, but rather when it was patented, so it doesn't give us a precise date of when the item was crafted but it does give us a "ball-park" time-frame.
The number "1" at the top of the lozenge tell us this item was class 1, or the best quality of Silver plating available at the time. "9" refers to the date in the month, "L" refers to September, and "D" refers to the fact this design was patented in the year 1882.
CONDITION: Very Good
This authentic antique Victorian Silver bangle is in very good condition for its age. After 135 years it's stylish stud-like pattern and snake motif are still crisp and easy to see and the Silver has taken on a dark aged patina that suits the item really well.
The three-dimensional parts of the bangle at each end look mint with only light wear to the back of the bangle. The plain Silver section that wraps around the back of the wrist has a few light dings but all in all, it's in good wearable condition and has a lot more fun times left in it still! A great inexpensive piece of antique jewellery with bags of character that you don't have to be too precious about for daily wear.
