A to die for Art Deco 1920's piercework or filigree hinged bracelet. The center stone is amethyst colored glass with 4 other stones on the sides. The bracelet is incredibly detailed and although it looks dainty, it is surprisingly strong and well made. The finish is most likely chromium, though some folks will state that it is rhodium. It is in superb condition with a little patina within the recesses of the design in a few areas. The bangle is hinged and working perfectly.
The center stone measures approx. 3/4th of an inch and is quite wonderful. The bracelet measures approx. 7/8th of an inch at the widest point and tapers to a little more than 3/8th of an inch at the back. The bracelet is signed JHP on the clasp which is the mark for the J.H. Peckham company out of Attelboro Mass. This style of bracelet can be seen on page 125 of "Popular Jewelry 1840-1940" by Roseann Ettinger with a price range of $150-$325.
In excellent condition overall. There is a small fleabite on a facet of the center stone and a few light scratches. The safety chain is missing and there is graying to the small stones so we have priced it accordingly. The finish is in excellent shape and the clasp is nice and tight.
