A rare pair of pinchbeck bracelets. Pinchbeck is an alloy of zinc, copper and tin and was used extensively in the 18th and nineteenth centuries. Each bracelet is set with an oval china plaque that has been hand painted with a giraffe and foliage. The bracelets are composed of intricately woven hair .There is some debate as to whether the hair is the giraffe’s hair or human hair! They were made circa 1800-1820.
