It does not get any more Art Deco than this absolutely gorgeous bracelet! Made in solid 14k Gold and vitreous enamel. The chain bracelet is composed of enameled tubular links that alternate mottled mint Green and highly polished black enamel.
The book locket charm is also solid 14k Gold with black and mint green enamel. Each page inside holds a single tintype photograph, which has been developed directly on the solid 14k gold. It's truly amazing in style, manufacture and quality. The details are truly beautiful like the hinged clasp that holds the locket closed, not to mention the charm of the baby picture and the noble image of a gentleman.
Bracelet measures 7 7/8" long It can be clasped at 6 7/8" long, the charm will drop lower on the smaller length.There are two clasps on the bracelet for versatility. It can also be used as a watch chain.
Book locket is 11/16" tall not including the bail. It is 9/16" at the widest point and 1/8" thick. The spine is articulated and holds two pages plus the front and back covers. Front cover is engraved with the initials E.T.S.
The only other similar locket I have found is by Cartier. The mark on that locket is on the jump ring that holds the book locket. Unfortunately, it looks like this jump ring has been replaced. The clasps, however, have hand engraved marks that are very tiny, barely legible with 20x magnification. Stamped 14k and engraved 47 or 97 on one clasp. Opposing clasp is stamped 14k with very little left to the hand engraving.
Very carefully tested, in excellent condition with no obvious damage to the enamel, some light scratches only visible with magnification.
Overall approximate weight is 11.25 grams. Estimated to date from the 1920's.View full product details
