    Silver Link 1930s Ikora Bracelet by WMF

    An unusual example of vintage German jewelry, this silver link Machine Age bracelet was made by Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). This German company is best known for its Art Nouveau and Art Deco silver-plated tableware. This silver-plated link bracelet from the Ikora line closes with a concealed clasp. The warm patina is the result of the oxidation process the jewelry department used in its manufacturing. This wonderful bracelet is attractive, yet neutral enough to be worn with a variety of attire for a range of day and evening activities.

    Lapis & Chrome German 1930s Necklace

    , ,

    Lapis glass beads separated by decorative chrome links and a center Galalith(?) bead with chrome end caps form this German Machine Age necklace.  The same piece in other colors has been attributed to Bengel by a British expert. (This maker’s pieces were never signed.) This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp, which may be a replacement (it is brass in color). The center bead has a minor flaw that probably occurred during manufacture.  This small imperfection does not detract from the beauty or wearability of this necklace.
