Each of the seven panels on this sterling silver Art Deco bracelet by Alice Caviness features a symbol of ancient Egypt surrounded by filigree and lotus blossoms. The design detail and craftsmanship are exquisite. This bracelet has a hidden tongue-in-groove clasp with a safety catch. This designer’s pieces are difficult to date, so I’m guessing it’s an Art Deco Revival bracelet made after World War II.
