c1840 sterling bracelet with thread ball cage


Mid-19th century sterling filigree bangle bracelet with a matching yarn or thread ball “cage” to keep your yarn close at hand without rolling away as you work. A ball of Perle 8 is shown for size. One of the prettiest accessories I’ve ever seen.

Bracelet opening measures about 3-1/4″ across; the central cartouche bears a “CK” monogram. 6-1/2″ height overall. The matching cage is about 2-7/8″ diameter with heavy silver loops alternating with filigree leaf and scroll motifs and has Austrian hallmarks on the rim.

Very good condition overall with minute signs of use and age. Bracelet with some minute denting, one loop with a minor repair and reattachment to ball at bottom of holder.

This item will require a signature at delivery.
