FIGLI DI VITTORIO FRANCONERI di LIDIA FRANCONERI & C Via Mannelli, 163 FIRENZE 22/05/1935 active at 31/12/1971 VV
As far as the date, it is still a guess for me. The hallmark laws were implemented in 1935 but judging the style of this amazing piece I think it is pre 1935. Just a guess and I would welcome any voice of authority.
The front of the bracelet is 7/8" thick including the spiked domes. The back is 3/4" thick including the balls. Outside measures 3 1/8" by 2 11/16" not including the domes or balls. The inside measurements are 2.5 inches by 2 inches. Weight of 109 grams. The balls have been re-soldered at some time. Otherwise this is in amazingly excellent condition. Judging from the girth and the set of balls on the back of the bracelet I would say that this was made for a man. This bracelet has always garnered appreciation when I have worn it. A fine find for your ethnic jewelry collection.
