Enamel is a translucent or opaque flow of glass that is applied to metal or ceramics or fitted into metal
fitted into metal. In enamel jewelry, the metal can be gold, silver, copper or brass.
Here we see a great antique bracelet from the Art Deco period, which probably comes from Norway.
It was worked using the so-called guilloche technique. Two similar techniques are used here, in which rays or two-dimensional patterns are cut into the metal background
two-dimensional patterns are cut into the metal base, onto which translucent layers of enamel are applied to create an iridescent effect.
This technique is called "Tour á Guillocher" in French.
This technique was used particularly in the late 18th and 19th centuries for medallions, jewelry, tobacco and powder boxes, etc.
This gorgeous bracelet is crafted in solid silver, gold-plated and consists of five large sky-blue enameled rectangular main links.
These are each connected with a black enameled flower in a great Art Deco style.
This great stylish bracelet is hallmarked with 925 silver and is in excellent condition.
Material: 925 silver hallmarked and enameled
Provenance: probably Norway 1920
