1920s Silver Turkish Bracelet: Cuff bracelets in this style were first presented in the Turkish Pavilion at the 1889 World Exposition in Paris. This particular bracelet can be dated to 1923 by the Turkish National Silver Standard hallmark on the back (the crescent moon with the star inside) and by the use of turquoise colored celluloid for the embellishments.
This 1920s silver Turkish bracelet measures approximately 7 inches around the wrist on the smallest link. The chain clasp can add another 1 inch for a wearable length of 8 inches at the longest. The cuff panels and hinges are struck in .900 silver and hallmarked with the Ottoman standard silver mark. At some point, someone clumsily stained the back by “testing for sterling” because they couldn’t be bothered to properly research this piece. For your reference, this bracelet and it’s hallmark are documented, confirming the age and origin. I can promise you that in my care, this bracelet was polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips were used.
