Antique Victorian Gold Curb Link Bracelet with Keyed Padlock. Made in the 1870s, the hollow link curb chain bracelet is finished with a heart padlock with original key. The gold bracelet has a lovely, warm look. Although I usually think of first quality silver work when I think of Unger Brothers, according to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, “Founded in 1872, the Newark, New Jersey, firm of Unger Brothers first established a trade in gold jewelry.”
The bracelet measures approximately 8 inches long, and a width of about 9/16 inch wide. The padlock is approximately 5/8 inches wide and 7/8 inches tall.
In much loved vintage condition, with many dents and dings from long years of wear. There is also one tiny hold where the gold has worn through. I think this adds to the beauty of the bracelet.
