Fine condition, wear on the links revealing a brass base. This is silver-plated, I gave it a (very) quick dip in silver polish to remove the yellow tarnish; can't tell if the slight yellow tint is from wear on the plating or from tarnishing. It is definitely still wearable as is. The bracelet is made of a very fine twisted wirework connected by thick jumprings. S-hook clasp. (*consignmt)

****

VINTAGE AQUA MOSAIC FLORETTES BRACELET
Price: S$20.00 (US$16.67)


Size: 7.25" length, 10mm width

Linked bracelet with aqua coloured insets (not epoxy painted on top like the cheaper or newer bracelets), I think these are made of glass. Safety chain is still intact, foldover clasp. Probably 1960s-70s.

VINTAGE OX-BRASS FILIGREE BALL TOP LINKED BRACELET
Price: S$25.00 (US$20.83)



Size: 7.25" length, 23mm width
Good condition, minor scuffs. One noteable flaw with verdigris (green oxidation) occuring on one of the ball accents at the end (see 4th photo, although already cleaned off). The bracelet is burnished oxidised-brass with a sealant coat to protect the oxidation but this coat has worn out more on this side of the ball so there are orange and dark spots on it with a dull area. The rest of the ball accents are okay although they are dull towards the bottom as these parts are not sealed. Small signs of verdigris still on the grooves of the oval pieces, Despite the chunky size, this bracelet weighs light, the bottoms are made of a floral scroll filigree and matte. Push tongue clasp. Probably 1950s-60s.
