Victorian Double Lion Buckle Bracelet in 14k Gold

$ 2,475.00 

* * SOLD * *

A late Victorian buckle bracelet, made in 14k yellow gold and featuring a pair of roaring lions in fiery multi-color enamel. These glorious beasts have ruby-set eyes, and their frame is ornate, with luxurious, curling forms. The doubled ribbon that makes up the body of this bracelet is Swiss satin, in deep navy blue. The long, narrow loop, that fixes the ribbon, also attaches to a length of chain and a dog clip that closes the bracelet. This fixture, and the lion buckle, would have been part of a watch fob, originally. This buckle is a rarity, and its condition is exceptional. It is marked for the well known American jewelers Alling and Co.
