A quality vintage Silver bangle made in the English town of Chester, c.1950.
This pretty Silver bracelet was clearly made to last! At 68 years old (and counting!) it's in incredible condition! The hinge is nice and solid and closes shut tight, and it still has the original Silver safety chain so you can wear it out and about with complete confidence.
Although it's a very pretty thing at over 40 grams of pure Silver it's quite a substantial accessory! It's sturdy enough to withstand the knocks and busyness of everyday day life, so would work well as a bangle for daily wear. You can wear it out dancing or to work without a worry.
We adore the gorgeous domed shape of the bangle. The smooth surface doesn't catch on your clothes and it looks great with anything from jeans to your very best little black dress!

VERY GOOD / EXCELLENT: This vintage Silver bangle is in near perfect condition for its age. The hinge works well and the bangle closes tight with a satisfying "click"! As you can see the scrolled foliate engraving is just lovely with no damage. There's some noticeable wear to the plain side (or back) of the bangle; light scratches and the odd small ding, but nothing that takes away from the beauty and charm of it. It's exceptionally solid and sturdy; sure to bring its new owner at least another half-century of enjoyment!
