Tortolani Vintage 1960s Massive Goldtone Zodiac Cuff Bracelet
From Tortolani's 1960s Zodiac series comes this gorgeous vintage high-relief hinged cuff bracelet, featuring all 12 of the Zodiac signs. This clever design is a bit of a puzzle; you have to look carefully to see every one. Excellent vintage condition.
This piece weighs in at 6.2 ounces, and its inner dimensions measure 2" x 2-3/8". It's too large on my 6" wrist - a 7" wrist or larger would display this beauty with style. The design section of the cuff measures 2" across; the hinge section measures 1". The clasp is hidden in the design, to the left of Virgo. Signed "Tortolani" on a molded freeform cartouche.
This bracelet dates from the mid-1960s; see last picture featuring a 1966 Palm Beach Post article about dramatic accessories. This bracelet is featured in the photo, at upper left. Clipping from Newspapers.com.
