An Important Mid 19th Century Gold & Lapis Bangle By Cartier

Description

An Important mid 19th century gold and lapis bangle by Cartier, set to the centre with a gold dome inlayed in a lapis plaque, surrounded by Etruscan style wire and bead-work decorations, the hinged bangle composed of four panels each bearing a smaller gold dome inlayed in lapis to twisted-wire decorations, all five panels connected with five engraved bar links, each bar flanked by two oval cabochon lapis, all mount in yellow gold to an interlocking slide clasp and safety chain, bearing the mark of Louis- François Cartier, circa 1860, measuring approximately 3.4cm wide, internally measuring 6.3 x 5.2cm, gross weight 70.21 grams.

An extravagant Etruscan revival bracelet, made by Cartier in the mid-nineteenth century. Cartier was founded in 1847 in Paris by Louis-Francois Cartier, and this bracelet demonstrates the early style of Cartier which was influenced by the popular Victorian Etruscan revival style. This gorgeous bangle features bright yellow gold and vivid blue lapis lazuli, as well as wirework filigree decoration, all elements that recall the archaeological discoveries of the Ancient Etruscan people. Splendid in its detail and craftsmanship, this bracelet is a fabulous example of both early Cartier jewellery and of mid-nineteenth century design.
