French Art Deco Machine Age Tri Gold Plated Modernist Link Bracelet

On the Machine-Age Movement. The machine age movement began in the United States after World War I, when there was an explosion of industry and technology including skyscrapers, automobiles, airplanes, and streamlined, metallic trains. Artists and jewelry makers, inspired by the newfangled aesthetics and Zeitgeist around this modern landscape, created machine age jewelry. These pieces featured the clean, efficient lines of machines and the sheen of metal. They allowed people to express with fashion the excitement of the modern age.
On Excellent Condition. Antique and vintage pieces have been passed through generations, so it's not often you find a piece that has been maintained in its near-original condition. Such pieces are not only higher in value, but they are also more collectible, as they carry the history of past owners but do not show it. They reveal what the piece would have looked like when it was first created, giving us an insight into a bygone era.
