Vintage 1930's Alex Co Sterling Niello Goddess Bracelet
Sterling silver niello bracelet featuring Hindu goddess The Ramakien carvings. This bracelet is a beautiful, artful, wearable piece of history with an awesome story behind it.
The niello application used on this piece is a mixture of copper, silver and lead inlaid and engraved on sterling silver. It was made in Siam (Thailand prior to 1939). These pieces were often purchased by American soldiers during WWII, and brought back to the the states for their beloveds.
This particular bracelet has an extra-special story behind it. It has a few home repairs with a steel straight pin. The original owner would have had this bracelet during the Great Depression, meaning she probably did not have the spare money for a repair and had to do it herself. These repairs make this bracelet one of a kind and cherished.
