A beautiful and super quality antique Victorian sterling silver and black enamel mourning bracelet with a seed pearl set 'guiding star' motif on one side and the other side bright cut engraved in the German words "Gott Mit Dir" which means God be with you.
Beautifully engraved and full of sentiment, the presence of pearls speaks of tears shed for the dearly departed the bracelet is a bangle style and and worn closely fitted to the wrist. Crafted on the oval and hinged it opens from the side and fastens with a hidden shovel clasp, it has a silver safety chain adding to the lovely decoration.
The bracelet is in very, very good antique condition with light surface scratches, a little surface wear to some of the pearls and the enamel has been touched up in a couple of places which is only visible under close magnification. The clasp is fairly heavy duty and in perfect working order closing with a satisfying click.
