Antique Victorian Extra Wide Brown Tortoise Shell Cuff
Exquisite hand carved tortoise shell curves around the wrist in this antique circa 1880s Victorian cuff bangle bracelet. The extra wide cuff has a scalloped top and bottom with uniquely shaped cut outs on each side with a fold over in the back. The cuff measures 6 3/4 inches at rest and is 2 1/8 inch wide in the front. The tortoise shell is somewhat flexible and expands over the wrist to put on. During the Victorian era, tortoise shell was the symbol of good health and longevity. A most exquisite antique!
