Signed 'BARTEK', fine condition with aging (some dulling) and quite some wear on gold plating surface revealing a silvertone. Hardware all works ok. Some verdigris (green oxidation) within the grooves where I was unable to reach, but not a problem when wearing as it is a small section on one edge near the hinge. The borders are polished while the fronts have a cross-hatched texture, inner rim is matte. Bartek's operations ran from the 1930s-50s, this is probably 1950s.

****


VINTAGE ANTIQUE-SILVERTONE FLORAL CUFF BANGLE
Price: S$55.00 (US$45.83) nett

Size: abt 7" circumference including open space, 34mm thick
Intricate floral etched metal cuff bangle, in fine-good condition with lots of aging. Darkening of the silvertone on the inner rims and the ends. There is also a dent on one of the sides at the front. It looks very similar to Victorian silver bangles but I think it is a revival piece, this is not sterling silver, but feels like it may contain a percentage of silver. Possibly 1940s-50s.

****

VINTAGE BROWN BONE STRETCH BRACELET (altered)
Price: S$20.00 (US$16.67)

Size: abt 6.5", 26mm
Lovely dyed bone stretch bracelet, very good condition. Each bead is slightly different as they are hand-cut. This was restrung by me on nylon cord, very boho flavour. Probably 1960s/70s.

****

VINTAGE/ RETRO RED, WOOD & GOLD BEADED EXPANSION BANGLE
Price: S$15.00

Size: 6.75" adjustable, 30mm thick
Lovely piece with strong bohemian & ethnic flavour, I believe of indian origin. Very good condition with minor aging. Consists of wooden beads, glass red beads and golden & red metallic cords. Note that there are some glass beads scattered on the surface, these are not beads that are undone from the wirework but are fused together (2 beads stuck together) when the glass beads were manufactured.

****

RETRO RHINESTONE BAMBOO STYLE BANGLE

****

VINTAGE VARGAS PALE BLUE HINGED BANGLE BRACELET
Price: S$180.00


Size: 7", 31mm width
Signed 'Vargas' in script (their older mark). Fine - good condition; very fine condition because of some crackling starting to appear on the plastic. I consider it as a minor distraction but just in case. All mechanical parts work well. Aging and wear on the goldtone and a few normal surface scuffs. This could be possible 1940s/50s; there were similar bangles made during the art deco period (1920-30s) but Vargas jewellery only came about in the 1940s. Great collectible piece for any vintage wardrobe!

Old possibly 1940s-50s bangle - tested positive for sterling silver. No hallmark. It has alot of patina but I have polished the inner rim, and retaining the patina on the outer etched parts for the antiqued look. The edge of one side is uneven (3rd photo).

****

VINTAGE RHINESTONE-LINED EXPANDABLE BRACELET
