This darling repousse antique Silver bangle is just as beautiful today as it would have been when it was first made, at the turn of the 20th century!
One side features a whimsical embossed design of wild roses with amazing detail, whilst the other is plain polished Silver.
Together with the pretty raised (or "repousse") design the front also has a hammered finish- bringing a further interesting texture that catches the light as you move, and a busy little bee that's attracted to the sweet flowers.
The bangle is hinged so it easy to get on quickly, and has an oval shape so it doesn't spin on the wrist like the rounded type do. Despite its 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 safe.
As antique bangles go this one is beautiful, practical and neither too light nor too heavy! The design is completely unique, and would make a gorgeous gift for any occasion.

A stunning repousse Antique Silver bangle in perfect condition. The hinge and clasp are in good working order and close 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 wildlife fora and fauna- which would make an amazing gift for someone of almost any age.
We procured the bangle in France, although we believe it is probably Swiss or German rather than French. It doesn't feature the traditional French animal hallmarks for Silver, but the use of 800 purity Silver was widespread in this area of the world during the art Nouveau period, and the style is very much in-keeping with the region and the late 1800's to early 1900's time-frame.
