Antique Sterling Silver Bangle with Cats Eye Shells.
British hallmarks for Birmingham 1884 on this sterling silver bracelet or snap-bangle. It has a plain rear, and a face with an engraved pattern mounted with five graduated cats eyes (which are the operculm of the sea snail Turbo Smaragdus). Bangle has a tongue slide clasp and is fitted with a safety chain. Slightly oval in shape, it measures 5.3 cm wide internally by 5.4 cm. It is 1.8 cm high. At the rear it has the presentation initials M.H over W.H. in script. It is in excellent condition, no dents. There is tarnish around the shells - I haven’t cleaned this off, as this is a desirable condition for some. Unusual item, I’ve previously never had cats eyes on anything other than chain link bracelets.
