1930's Sterling Silver Marcasite Flower Link Bracelet
This amazing marcasite bracelet come to us from the estate of a lovely lady named Myrtle. Myrtle was from originally from Switzerland and traveled to the US as an Au-par. She met her future husband, also from Switzerland, who worked as a silk fabric designer. They married and had one child before passing early in years. My wonderful friend was is Myrtle's granddaughter is a retired archaeologist and is looking for a good home for a few of her family pieces. She lost her grandmother, Myrtle to ovarian cancer, when she was only 6 years old, but remembers her as kind and beautiful. This bracelet is in very good condition, especially for it's age. A couple of stones have little chips. but nothing that is eye visible. The beautiful flower motif is delicate, but makes a statement. Locking clasp works perfectly and links in working order.
