What's for sale?

This is an engraved, Sterling silver hinged bangle, made during the 1960s and hallmarked for Birmingham, England.

The engraved decoration is a simple, floral pattern depicting three flowers on a long stem. The engraving runs around one half of the bangle, while the other half is undecorated.

This a slender bangle and so is lighter to wear and perhaps less obtrusive than some of the larger cuffs. The square edging also gives it a more modern look.
