Art Deco Lapis Lion Armlet Bracelet Sterling Silver c. 1920
These antique armlets are getting harder and harder to find--some of you who visit the store may know that I often wear a Deco snake armlet and I love having one! Made circa 1920, this piece is either a large bangle bracelet to be worn up at the top of the forearm or if you have a thinner arm, an armlet made to be worn above the elbow. Four intricately designed lions heads hold a vibrant lapis lazuli cabochon in their mouths. This piece is very much in the Italian style of the day but there are no markings. A special, unusual piece--please see the measurements below to see if it will fit you!
Not stamped or signed but tested for metal content.
Interior measures 2 7/8" diameter, or about 9 1/4" circumference. Measures 1/2" wide at the widest.
Weighs 18.7 grams.
In excellent antique condition with nice patina.
