Antique Georgian Pinchbeck & Moonstone Beaded Cuff Bracelet Clasp (A1157)

  • £13499


Description

A Georgian period two part clasp.  These items were used for beaded and velvet cuff bracelets during the later Georgian period.  This elaborate example has a pinchbeck type metal top set with a central facet cut rectangular shaped white moonstone.  It has a further eight round moonstone cabochons around the outside all with milled edges  The lower part of the frame and mechanism are in a copper alloy.  Each side has four holes and the bead strings or velvet would be sewn to the bracelet through these holes. 

Due to the age these items are very scarce and this example appears complete and as such can be incorporated into something new or made into an original style beaded bracelet. 

One cabochon has little red hematite inclusions and some have natural flaw lines which are original to the piece and show the natural origin of the stones.  A very pretty and rare item.
