Condition Report:

Very Good - The tiniest amount of darkening to a couple of rhinestones. This is only visible upon close inspection and does not detract from the overall appeal of the piece.

The Details...

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 rhinestones for a new feminine look and movement. This bracelet was made by DoSo. The term is a trademark found stamped on many items of jewellery made in Germany during the Art Deco period.
