Superb Victorian Horse Bracelet, Incredible Etruscan Revival Details

195.00

I'm in awe over the amount of detail in this bracelet! It dates to the late 1800's and does show a good bit of Etruscan Revival influence. The amazingly realistic horse head is in the round meaning he has a complete front and back with two garnet paste eyes. His face is treated with a very delicate texture that emulates his fine hairs. Overall, his proportion and details are quite impressive giving him a really wonderful personality! His chin rests on a collar of granulated beadwork which is bordered on each side with a tiny twisted rope. On the far end of the bypass is an incredible floret element which is a showcase of more granulation, more tiny twisted rope and a gorgeous scalloped shell. Certainly a remarkable amount of craftsmanship went into making this bracelet! The metal is rolled gold with a rather rosy hue. The bracelet is in very good condition with only very minor wear. There is a push-button tongue and groove clasp opposite a small hinge mechanism. The clasp opens and closes as it should and holds very securely when locked in place. There is a small safety chain which will give you added security. The inside dimensions are 2-1/4" from hinge to clasp and 1-3/4" high. The horse's head is 3/4" long and the amazing floret is 5/8" around. It's really just such an incredible bracelet. An absolute conversation piece and an awesome addition to round out any Victorian collection!
