A beautiful and classic vintage English sterling silver bangle bracelet bearing full hallmarks for 1962.
The bracelet is nice and wide and engraved on the front in fabulous fern flourishes and scrolls, a pattern beloved by the Victorians and still treasured today. The fern represents sincerity and these these charming sentimental bracelets have always made for popular gifts given to sweethearts and brides.
Lovely quality in heavy gauge silver the bangle is crafted on the oval with a D-profile and it has a hinge on one side and a hidden shovel clasp on the other. We particularly like the decorative push button closure that is accented by a bright cut sunrise motif, another little lovely design detail that adds to the overall appeal as does the decorative safety chain.
Condition is very, very good. There is a very small dent on the back side. which is fairly typical with these hollow bracelets, please see photos. The bracelet is perfectly polished (any dark marks are shadow and reflections), the floral engraving is still fresh and crisp, the hinge solid and the clasp works perfectly and holds securely
