Vtg Art Deco Sterling Silver Repousse HOLLY LEAF Flower Wide Bracelet
The design of this bracelet rests on the artful conception of just one link, that repeats across the piece for a seamless look. Each sterling silver panel is elliptically shaped and quite wide for a substantial weight and feel, with a bold silhouette that still wraps smoothly around your wrist. The textural looking repousse border handsomely captures light and shadow, and frames the cheery Holly Berry motif beautifully. This piece is fresh looking and must have been tucked away and well. Taken care of or worn infrequently. The silver setting has a bright patina with very little surface wear and no dents or irregularities. There are no other irregularities to the setting or signs of solder or repair and the piece has a firm shape. Period 1930s – 40s. Floriography, or the language of flowers, is rooted in the Victorian era. It refers to the assignment of special emotional meanings to certain flowers. Including those flowers in jewelry was a way to slyly convey one’s feelings in a society that discouraged showing your emotions. For example, red roses were (and still are today) associated with romantic love and passion, while forget-me-knots were associated with remembrance. 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. _gsrx_vers_1233 GS 8.1.1 (1233).
