Description

DATE: Victorian, 1876

A gorgeous Victorian gold bangle in the Etruscan Revival style. It's modelled in 15 karat yellow gold, and adorned with fine applied ropework and granulation. It dates from the 1870s, with clear Chester hallmarks for the year 1876.

The Etruscan Revivalist movement began in the mid 19th Century, inspired by jewellery discovered in excavations of ancient tombs in Pompeii and Herculaneum. The intricate goldwork of these finds enchanted both the working jewellers and the high society of the time, indeed it took a over a decade for jewellers re-learn the techniques used by their ancient counterparts.
