1930s Glamour - Superb German Paste Bracelet
Retro chic is never out of style and this fabulous Art Deco sterling and clear paste bracelet will dim all the lights in the room with its glitter. Referred to as the “Cartier of German costume jeweler” by noted jewelry historian and collector Robin Deutsch, the fabricator was the Knoll and Pregizer Company of Pforzheim, Germany.
Harkening back to the days of "original" paste jewelry, this gorgeous bracelet has been handcrafted in sterling silver and has been set with fine clear white pastes in the manner consistent with the construction of a piece of fine jewelry. Medallions of flower motifs set with round clear pastes in a range of sizes are linked by baguette style pastes to baguette banded sheaves dotted with round clear pastes. It is finished with a tongue and grove clasp and secured with the addition of a figure eight safety.
Mysteriously, there is a handmade piece at the back that flips up only partially. Totally out of the way, the piece is seated into the back of the bracelet. We have not (as yet) been able to ascertain a purpose.
Measurements: 7-3/8 inches (18.7 cm) in length when worn and can fit a wrist of about 7-1/2 inches or less (due to the nature of wrists not being perfectly rounded and the flexibility of the design by 13/16 of an inch (2.1 cm) in width. This bracelet has a weight of 56.4 grams (36.3 dwt).
Hallmarks: “935”; sterling; Germany; maker's mark “KP” for Knoll and Pregizer.
Date & Origin: Circa 1930 and is German in origin.
Overall Scale: Large and substantial in weight.
