Victorian Sterling Silver Buckle Bangle. This gorgeous, impressive bangle is made from solid sterling silver. It is of ovoid form with a large belt and buckle to the front and a Bright-Cut engraved Ivy design on either side, and the back is plain. It is hinged to one side with a compression clasp to the other and a push-bottom for opening it.It is hallmarked inside the band for Birmingham 1886 with the makers mark W. There are no personalised inscriptions on this piece. This bangle is in lovely, usable condition although, after 123 years, there are a few things to bring to your attention. The front is in good order and the decorative work is nice and crisp. The only things to mention are a very small, light dint to the bottom right-hand side of the buckle (which is barely noticeable) and a tiny hole to both the top and bottom of the strap across the buckle caused through polishing over the years.
The hinge is in good order as is the clasp and button release. The back, however, does show signs of previous use. Most noticeable are a pea-sized dent on the button side, two dints a bit further round, a nail head dent at the centre of a bruise that runs across the middle of the band and some more small, light dints and bruises.
Ive shown all aspects in the photos below and they are reflected in the asking price for what is still a beautiful and functional piece.
