Hand Carved Ivory Slave Bangle
Dropped waistlines, row upon row of beaded fringe, speakeasies all the rage and Cartier producing masterpieces - after the war the world was new again. Along with slinky long beads (and those are in…in… in… nearly 100 years later just as they were then) slave bangles or upper arm bangles were the jewelry accessory of the day. So here is the prefect accoutrement…hand-carved entirely of ivory, we have one of the most beguiling of body adornments…a snake motif arm bangle. Texture galore with every inch diagonally carved to illustrate the surface of its skin, the head wound and coiled around its body and a darting tongue flickering out. Even the snake’s belly is carved with the touch of a master. Can be worn above or just below the elbow depending on mood.
The inner circumference would fit an arm up to 9-1/2 inches (24.1 cm). Thickness of the bangle ranges from 7.7 mm to 9.4 mm. Condition is very good to excellent; light yellowing and surface imperfections and tiny specks of ingrained darker patina. Find another? Hardly and certainly not one fully carved in-the-round. Slip on that slinky black dress, apply fire engine red lipstick, comb your china doll haircut and this - you need nothing more.
