Gothic-Style Bracelet


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This extravagant bracelet consists of five arched segments and three foliate segments. Judging from indentiations in the original leather case, this piece was originally a diadem with two additional foliate elements rather than a bracelet. All the pieces are hinged together and carried out in elaborate openwork decorated with precious stones and scrollwork. The five large segments imitate Gothic architecture with ogive arches and columns.
