Love exquisite filigree & Art Deco? If so, do I have a treat for you! Here I present only the best and finest of Ostby & Barton fine jewelry.
Here we have a superb signed OB STERLING bangle bracelet with phenomenal laced filigree that is milgrained and ornate detail designed etched into the silver. The filigree is all in tact with no damage. It is perfect! It is stamped OB Sterling, as shown. (On the backside, above the stone, on the very top, on the left side.)
The bracelet is 1 1/16" wide at widest point on front. 5/8" wide on back and sides 2 1/2" across. It will fit a 7" to a 7.5" wrist. It weighs a hefty 18.9g of solid sterling silver. The stone is amethyst glass and is in a beautiful marquis cut and in excellent condition. The clasp works great and has its original paperclip chain.
This is a fine antique bracelet in excellent, gently used condition! It is a fine example of early 20th century American Filigree work as only Englehart Ostby could design, which makes these pieces so desirable and sought after. This bracelet is very rare and hard to find, especially in such fine condition! Very nice & rare piece...don't let this opportunity pass you by! $359.00
