1880s Victorian Fan Bracelet (in the online shop)
One of my favorite things about the Victorians was their obsession with the “exotic” and how various motifs from across the globe all got tossed together into one big mess. Here we have an Etruscan Revival bracelet with a sort of Japanese fan attached to it. Both Etruscan art and Japanese design were important influences in 1880s Europe, but you don’t often see them combined so directly.
