Vtg Art Deco Dragons Breath Jelly Opal Glass Silver Tone Wide Cuff Bracelet
The unique fiery effect of the specialized glass and the cabochons’ prominent size makes this late 1930’s – 40’s bracelet striking. If you haven’t had a dragon’s breath piece in your hands, it is a deep pink translucent glass and when it catches light at the right angle, it glows from within a mysterious blue “vapor” looking color. The glass cabochons on this bracelet are particularly large so the effect is enhanced. With hinged sides, the bracelet clamps on firmly, allowing the glass to sit upright on your wrist when worn. This piece has a modest amount of wear and age that is noticeable on inspection. The silver tone setting has a bright patina without any dents. There is some wear to the finish showing through a brassier patina underneath. The glass has a smooth surface and a nice sheen without any chipping and very little surface wear. There are no irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. Inside circumference from tip to tip. No clasp, the hinges are tight and clampy. (if the piece is not marked it is tested for silver content). Antique and vintage styles that are typically seen in small or modest sizes get dramatic attention when theyre found in large, oversized, or bold pieces. These larger versions increase the collectability of a piece. Uncommon antique and vintage pieces are often highly collectable because you are not likely to find another one. While some uncommon pieces have garnered a cult following, others are so uncommon that they do not have a large fanbase. The latter type may not be considered collectables, but they are lovely, almost one-of-a-kind finds. _gsrx_vers_837 GS 7.0.15 (837).
