Georgian Pinchbeck Chain Bracelet


Pinchbeck is an early form of brass named for its inventor, Christopher Pinchbeck, an 18th century London-based watchmaker. This c. 1800 bracelet is crafted in the so-named metal which was developed in the 1700s as an affordable alternative to gold. The ornate Georgian chain features long perforated links alternating with lengths of fancy interlocking chain and fastens with an engraved barrel clasp.
