An outstanding hand wrought 800 silver Etruscan style charm bracelet likely crafted by the Peruzzi silversmiths. The Peruzzi family of Florence, Italy have been making fine silver jewelry since the 1500's and this navy link chain along with the oversized fob charms decorated in cannetille wire work is a known design of theirs that was produced in the 1930s.
This is one of the most impressive Peruzzi bracelet we have ever had the pleasure in offering, the fob charms are massive, the largest we have ever come across. Arabesque in style there are a total of five, two hinged boxes with lids that open and close and a horseshoe, crescent moon and finally a heart.
The charms are set with red and green glass stones simulating coral, malachite and chrysoprase. They suspend from a wide elaborate navy chain that fastens with a large hook. Fabulous statement bracelet and highly collectible!
