Lady Launton Vintage Expandable Heart Bracelet Inscribed 8/17/47 by Bigney Co

Bitchin Retro


Happy Anniversary  -- 1947!

We can totally see a young man giving this sentimental bracelet inscribed 8/17/47 and engraved with the initials "C" and "B" as a present to his sweetie in the mid century. Was 8/17/47 the day they met? Their wedding day? Was it Bonnie and Clyde? Betty and Clarence? Cathy and Bob? 

In any case, this is an adorable expandable bracelet by S.O. Bigney Company in their Lady Launton line, dripping with the sentiment of a long lost love. 

Bitchin Retro Notes: This bracelet is in excellent vintage condition on the exterior, but is in average condition on the inside with various flea bites, and areas of plating loss. We cannot explain why they appear on a protected area of the bracelet and seem to add to the historical charm of this particular piece. They are not visible as worn. Please see photos. This bracelet expands to fit, but we think better suited for a smaller wrist.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
