Topázio Egyptian Revival Silver Bracelet
From the noted Portuguese company of Topázio we present a fabulous hinged bangle bracelet of sterling silver. Eight panels of silver come together to relate a pictograph of the head of an Egyptian pharaoh draped in ceremonial headdress against a background of an imposing pyramid.
Beneath the head and shoulders rendering is an opposing pair of spitting cobras, heads rearing up as they represent power, sovereignty and royalty. Between each panel a large papyrus flower symbolizes life itself. The interior of the bangle is round for ease of wearing with the outside perimeter having an octagonal configuration. Please note the clasp release button is modeled after a small flower. A safety chain ensures security.
Date: Circa mid 20th century.
Measurements: 6-3/4 inches (17.1 cm) in length by 15/16 of an inch (2.4 cm) at the widest. Will fit most any wrist from 6 inches up to 7-1/2 or a bit more. Weight of 39.2 grams (25.2 dwt).
Hallmarks: Topazio, Portugal and two Portuguese hallmarks.
Of Note: Translated from the website of Decoration and Arts de la Table, the brand mark Topázio is owned by Ferreira Marques & Irmão, S. A., since 1874. The company has one of the largest factories in the Iberian Peninsula, producing objects in silver and silver plated of high quality, sharing the brightness of that metal with crystal, glass or ceramics according to the designer inspiration. Jewelry from this firm has become quite collectible and pieces from their mid 20th century category are especially prized.
