Magnificent antique early Victorian bracelet! Wide links of intricate silver cannetille wire work centered with flower and bow details, join together to form this gorgeous piece. Oval shapes alternate with scalloped links so that each piece fits together just as a puzzle. Each link is raised on the side with a detailed flower pattern as well. Hallmarked with a touch mark on the tongue of the clasp, the piece is believed to be French in origin with the early import mark of the crab. A museum quality piece of Victorian jewelry perfectly preserved!

Cannetille is a form of filigree work. It typically features fine wires made into tendrils, scrolls, coils, beehives and spider-like rosette ornaments. Cannetille work was very popular in the 1820's and 1830's.

Circa: Mid 1800s
Hallmarks: Touch mark on the tongue clasp..believed to be French in origin
Condition: Very, very good with no bent cannetille wire work, clasp secure and the silver bearing a nice patina. This has been cared for through the years and in exceptional condiiton.
