Condition Report:

Very Good - Some rubbing to the surface of the square glass panels in a couple of small areas. This is consistent with age and use and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

Constructed from silver, this bracelet is detailed with channel set, clear, round paste stones arranged in a geometric design. At intervals along its length, there are four deep blue, square glass cabochons. The bracelet fastens with a box clasp. The bracelet is hallmarked with the German mark for Sterling Silver (935). It also features a makers mark (LL) - despite research, it hasn't been possible to attribute this mark to a specific maker. The bracelet measures 19cm.

A Short History...

During the 1920s and early 1930s, jewellery was influenced by the dawn of a new era. There was a push for all things modern after the shock of the First World War - people wanted to be cleansed of the old and celebrate the new. In the world of design a pure, hard-edged style was craved. This was evident in Bauhaus architecture, cubist art and the dropped-waist, linear-cut silhouette of the Flapper Girl. Jewellery designers looked to celebrate a burgeoning, bright industrial future in their work, creating pieces that looked almost mechanical with their sharp shapes and chrome coloured highlights. This bracelet is certainly a-typical of Art Deco jewellery design during the period - its bold geometry, encrusted with bright stones for a new feminine look and movement.
