HF Barrows Sterling Silver Slider Bangle Bracelet Vintage Designer Jewelry
This sterling bangle bracelet has a slider that is used to put it on or take it off, which is so convenient. I just love this style of bracelet. This one has a rounded surface and is 3/8" tall and with a 2-3/8" inside diameter (so is meant for a slightly smaller wrist). It has two lovely embossed panels with a floral designs. The slider is marked "Sterling" and "H.F.B," which is the mark for HF Barrows. I will lightly polish the bracelet before shipping, and it will be shipped in a gift box.
The HF Barrows company was founded in either 1851 or 1854 by Henry Francis Barrows, Sr., in Attleborough Falls MA. According to Wikipedia, "The firm was widely known for its gold chains, but it successfully diversified when watches with chains fell out of fashion after World War I. The company, no longer a private family business, moved to larger quarters in Lincoln, Rhode Island in 1999." I haven't been able to track the company beyond this point.
