An incredible and unusual antique Victorian English bracelet, made from solid genuine blonde tortoiseshell. Wonderfully deeply amber-coloured, its oversized links are modelled as chain links, and it has a massive heart-shaped padlock clasp with hand engraved solid gold fittings. It has anchor and heart charms too, I expect these are two of the three faith, hope and charity symbols. It dates from around 1870 and is in excellent, fully wearable condition throughout, with no loss or damage but slight internal ageing/inclusions, of no consequence. It weighs 24.3 grams, measures 8 ½ inches wearable length and the padlock is 2 x 1 ¼ inches. The final photo shows it with a US penny (1 cent) coin for scale, which measures 19 mm / ¾ of an inch diameter.
