Antique Australian Bamboo Bangle, Willis & Sons, Melbourne. The hinged bangle with alternating plain polished and embossed sections, designed to resemble bamboo.

A not uncommon motif from the Aesthetic movement, bamboo was inspired by the newly discovered Japanese style and represented luck, good health and happiness.

Willis & Sons, a Melbourne based firm established in 1858 were originally importers and wholesalers. By 1908, Willis & Sons were located at 350 – 356 Little Collins Street. After 50 years in the jewellery business, they were one of Australia’s most prolific jewellery manufacturers. “Their gold jewellery was produced for a substantial middle-class market and ... cufflinks, dress studs, tie and stickpins were also manufactured." (Cavil Cocks & Grace, Australian Jewellers, Gold & Silversmiths, Makers & Marks)

Metal: 9ct yellow gold

Weight: 24.18 grams

Width: 8 - 10mm

Inside Diameter: 5.5cm

Marks: The inside of the clasp has the typical three-part mark. The Unicorn Head and ‘W’ denote Willis & Sons, and 9 indicates 9ct gold.

Condition: Good original condition commensurate with age and use. The bangle closes well and has safety chain attached. There are a number of small dents and age appropriate scuffmarks.

SEDGWICKS pride ourselves on sourcing and selling Antique & Estate Jewellery that is of fine quality and in great condition.

Antique & Estate Jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. All items we sell are ‘Second-hand’ and will almost certainly show some signs of wear. These may include faint scuffmarks and small dents, even very minor repairs. These are considered acceptable when dealing with objects that have lived a full life. Any imperfections or minor damage will be listed in the description and visible in the photo.

We do ask that you carefully view the photographs provided and note we are happy to supply more images or fuller description if requested.

To help you make your assessment, many higher value items are accompanied by an Independent Valuation for Retail or Insurance Purposes.
