American Gilded Age Bracelet from The Met Museum


Our handsome bracelet features a sequence of natural jasper stones and nods to the decorative ornament on an American side chair (ca. 1870) in The Met collection. Herter Brothers (German, active New York, 1864-1906), one of New York’s premier cabinetmaking firms, produced this magnificent chair for the wealthy industrialist William H. Vanderbilt. Notable among its luxurious details are the turned legs and ionic capitals, as well as the graceful swan forms at the crest rails.
