Gold band bracelet. A gold bangle with an enamelled plaque bordered at the top and bottom with half pearls and set with small diamonds. The enamel shows the central group from the painting entitled 'Le Soir', by the Swiss artist Charles Gleyre, which was shown at the Salon in Paris in 1844. The painting had a great popular success and acquired a title, 'Les Illusions Perdu', with symbolic overtones not intended by the artist. The bangle is Swiss, possibly from Geneva, and is dated from 1845-50.


1845 AD - 1850 AD
