Russia antique FORGET ME NOT lucky charms silver bracelet, “good luck” horseshoe band. Made in St. Petersburg, Russian Empire circa 1880-1890; VERY RARE

An antique Russian Empire era “horseshoe” lucky charms silver bracelet made circa 1880-1890; gilt silver with engraved letters and “hot” multi-color enamel; St. Petersburg hallmark. The bracelet is done in the traditional Russian folklore form with an old “manuscript” style Cyrillic font across the band. It’s a very pretty piece of work, this bracelet was obviously done by an experienced silversmith and engraver.

The band reads “НОСИ НЕ ТЕРЯЙ / ЛЮБИ НЕ ЗАБЫВАЙ“, which loosely translates to WEAR – DO NOT LOOSE / LOVE – DO NOT FORGET. The interior side is stamped with St. Petersburg hallmark next to the Russian silver fitness standard of 84 zolotniks (.875 silver fitness by today’s standard). To the right of the assay’s office mark is the silversmith’s personal stamp …B – the first letter is too weakly struck to read.  An entire piece, including the clasp on a chain, is silver; the horseshoe “nails” are gold-filled silver.

The bracelet’s total weight is about 26.15 gm / 0.925 oz, it’s about 62 mm / 2-9/16” wide at the widest point, 70 mm / 2-3/4” long; about 12 mm tall in the center and about 7 mm tall at the end of the bracelet. The V-shaped silver clasp on a silver chain works well and stays tight.  This Russia antique FORGET ME NOT lucky charms silver bracelet is in great condition overall, considering the age and wear & tear. A couple of small dents, enamel chips, and minor repair spots around “horseshoe nails” are noted for accuracy – please see photos. Not cleaned or tampered with in any way. Guaranteed original or your money back. These are the actual photos.
