A fabulously detailed example of an antique Victorian mesh bracelet with fringe. The centerpiece was created from rose and yellow gold leaves with four seed pearls. The centerpiece is most likely gold topped with the rest of the bracelet being gold filled. This bracelet style is adjustable and will fit most average and petite sized wrists. Mesh and fringe bracelets were very popular in the 1870's. Sometimes these bracelets were given in sets as wedding bracelets.
Condition: The top of the centerpiece is in excellent condition as is the chased end of the buckle. The mesh portion of the bracelet does have some plating loss as well as one section about 1/2 inch at its widest point that has tarnished (luckily this is towards the bottom of the bracelet so it is not that noticeable when worn). One small link has been replaced. All eight foxtail fringe chains and balls are present with a little tarnish on a few of the chains. The keeper appears to be a later addition or repair.
