A unique bracelet from the late 19th century, c1880! Likely hailing from Scotland the unusual design comprises of four silver gilt ornate filigree links alternating with four carved agate links. Each of the agate links are fashioned into convex carved rectangular plaques. The agates display varying patterns and earthy tones of bottle green to greenish red (bloodstone variety) and banded cream to brownish orange hues; all amalgamating beautifully! The delicate silver gilt filigree-esque links are painstakingly accented with granulation grape clusters, leaf vines, coiling and fleur-de-lis motifs placed at each end. Little silver-tone rings connect the bracelet together and there is an integrated box tongue style clasp which opens and closes with a secure click. A small length at 6 & 3/4" (17cm) long, best suited to a small-medium ladies wrist.
A wonderful Victorian bracelet for the discerning lady.
