Victorian Egyptian Revival Bangle
ABOUT THIS BRACELET
So, you need a statement cuff? We've got one for you. Definitely in the one-and-only category, this remarkable Victorian Egyptian Revival wrist wrap is replete with all sorts of ravishing details. The striking focal piece, outlined with a fine textured-finish frame, presents a Limoges porcelain plaque exquisitely painted with an exotic Egyptian beauty (perhaps a Queen) en habille (the French term for being dressed), adorned with a headdress and choker necklace glimmering with rose-cut diamonds in silver settings. Hand fabricated in rich, velvety 18K yellow gold and gleaming with a soft velvety patina, the hinged cuff, measuring a quite conspicuous 1 1/2 inch wide, is embellished-- in striking juxtaposition--with a geometric design and a free-flowing flourish. Victorian chic with an Egyptian twist--what more could you want. Circa 1890-1900. Measures 7 inches. Condition note: two shallow dents in the rear.
