Condition Report: Very good condition


An extravagant Etruscan revival bracelet, made by Cartier in the mid-19th century. Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by Louis-Francois Cartier, and this bracelet demonstrates the early style of Cartier, which was influenced by the popular Victorian Etruscan revival style. This gorgeous bangle features bright yellow gold and vivid blue lapis lazuli, as well as wirework filigree decoration, all elements that recall the archaeological discoveries of the Ancient Etruscan people. Splendid in its detail and craftsmanship, this bracelet is a fabulous example of both early Cartier jewellery and of mid-nineteenth century design.

Joanna Hardy says: A collectors bracelet, rare to find early Cartier, great statement jewel, the bracelet is hollow and so light in weight and yet substantial design. Safety chain later added. For a large wrist like mine. Must not size it. Very, very slight dents which is commensurate with age. Probably made in England and sold in Paris.

Condition: very slight dents, commensurate with age.
