Late 19th Century Single Pearl Bangle in Original Box

Stunning in its simplicity, this luxe late 19th century bangle is modeled in 14k gold and set with a single 7mm split pearl. The bracelet comes in its original "horse hoof" box which bears the name of the Norwegian jeweler, P. A. Lie, and the city Christiania. In 1624, the city of Oslo was renamed "Christiania" and so it was called until 1877 when the spelling was changed ever so slightly to "Kristiania." This subtle name change is a great help in dating this bracelet, since the city name on the box begins with a "Ch" and not a "K" we know that this piece was made prior to 1877.
