Silvered bronze. Typical example of a well-known type worn by women of the middle class. Sheet bronze tapered from the just under 5/16” (8.0mm) width middle to the tips which are hand curled terminals. The face hand-decorated in various stipple patterns. Very simply crafted and the work of small cottage industries. This example of about 2 1/8” inner dimension. Professionally refurbished with the pure silver overlay restored for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity.
