1920s Art Deco Sterling Silver and Black Galalith Vintage Bracelet

Featuring a typically geometric Art Deco design, this striking high quality bracelet dates from the 1920s.

Condition Report:

Very Good - A tiny bit of scuffing to a couple of the Galalith edges. This is only obvious upon very close inspection. It is consistent with age and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

The bracelet fastens with a box clasp and features a safety chain too. The reverse of one panel is stamped 'STERLING' and the bracelet measures 18cm in length. 

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 and sharp silver for a new feminine look and movement. 

Wear it With...

This bracelet would work well stacked with Deco tennis bracelets for the ultimate glamorous statement.
