Heraldic sterling silver cuff bracelet appears to be hand made and features a medieval knight cut out and detailed soldered onto a raised rectangle of silver and applied as the bracelet's central focus. Each side of the bracelet features a hand-worked, in detailed raised relief with niello work and darkened and textured, stippled ground. One side shows what is referred to as an "edged" shield overlaid on two cross arrows. The opposite side features a sword behind another edged shield. The bracelet features raised oak leaf designs alternating with relief profies of knights in medieval helmets. The work on this bracelet is amazing. The perimeter of the bracelet displays raised oak leaves on darkened and textured ground. The bracelet measures approximately 2" wide and has a one inch opening. It is in Excellent Condition and is signed with a script L and the word, STERLING. This substantial sterling silver bracelet weighs 75.9 grams. The bracelet is definitely 20th Century and is probably domestic and perhaps one-of-a-kind because there are no assay markings. We submitted this to Jewelcollect and members were unable to identify the maker's mark. We tried researching Lang Sterling as suggested; however, we found no records of marks with a simple script L from that company and this piece seems to us not to be a production piece because it is so labor intense. So, we may never know who crafted this beauty, but we are certain it took a lot of time. We would be happy to hear from you if you have any additional information. In the meantime, we do want you to know that this has been in our personal collection for a number of years and we hope that it will find a new home with someone who appreciates and understands how fabulous a piece this really is. It is a truly stunning piece of sterling silver craftsmanship in vintage jewelry. Any discriminating collector will not only be pleased, but certainly impressed with the beauty, design and workmanship of this incredible sterling silver bracelet. (#45844-SterlingLCuff)
