Wondrous Georgian Pinchbeck & Enamel Bracelet
Pinchbeck is quite rare and not often seen in today’s marketplace. A metal alloy of copper and zinc, it was invented in the early 18th century. The formula was a highly guarded secret as Pinchbeck was used as a respectable alternative to high carat gold.
Dramatic in presentation, this early 19th century bracelet is most likely English in origin. It consists of a series of panels or links of yellow Pinchbeck – a most remarkable material which remains as bright and glowing as the made it was made. The central open work plaque is embellished with a black enamel panel decorated with a polychromatic floral motif. Of note, the rose-toned Pinchbeck adjustable clasp was specific to this time period.
Date: Circa 1830 – 1840.
Measurements: This is adjustable and has six settings. Will fit a small wrist up to about 7-1/4 inches (18.4 cm).
Condition: Excellent; enamel panel has one corner with a few chips only evident upon very close inspection or with magnification; clasp has overall even wear.
Origin: Most likely English.
