Georgian Berlin Iron Button Bracelet Gothic Design

$4,800

About

Berlin Iron has been a passion of collectors for hundreds of years and of this dealer, but not that long, and this Gothic bracelet is no exception. The graceful curves, the spires, the spikes, the appearance of lace in iron, the complexity, the history and the elegance of design is enough reason for collectors to share my passion. As with all antique jewelry prices have swooped up and come down. They reached a pinnacle where collectors paid exalted prices to own a piece. Well warranted as they are rare found mostly in museums around the world and sometimes in fragments. This is an early, c. 1800 German made bracelet in a Gothic design. They always look architectural. There are circles, tiny crosses and links that look like an iron gate. The closure is an unusual one, a button that fits into a circle. The condition is clean. When Napoleon invaded Germany and the French and German war dragged on, the German treasury, running low, asked the aristocrats to turn in their gold for iron. Loyal patriots did so and were given jewelry of Berlin Iron. It is a high to own a piece of this jewelry history 220 years old and in this condition. Measurements are 7 1/4 inches long and 1 3/4 inches high. Condition excellent. Weight 19.38 grams
