Description:

Aesthetic Movement 14kt Tricolor Gold Bracelet, Hedges & Co., Newark, c. 1879, composed of shaped red, white, and yellow gold geometric patterned links alternating with plain links, lg. 7 1/2 in., maker's mark.

Note: A similar example is illustrated in The Glitter & The Gold, Ulysses S. Dietz et al., fig. 106. In 1879, as Western interest in Asian mixed metal techniques was beginning, Hedges & Co. began using a patented process for a line of jewelry in "mottled multi-color gold". This bracelet was designed to resemble squares of checked cloth held together at the edges by pins.
Estimate $2,000-3,000
