Wide antique hinged bangle in genuine tortoise shell, with gold mountings and a gold slide clasp. Late 19th century. Not marked but the metal tests positive for 14KT
gold with jeweler's acid.
1 1/4 inches wide by 1/4 inch thick and 6 inches inside circumference. Very good condition. Clasp is tight. There are two very small
outside chips at the hinge and a scratch inside one side. These do not show when the piece is worn. Photos enlarged to show detail.
