This is another bracelet I bought last weekend at a flea market. Am I correct it is copper? It is unmarked. This linked- disc motif reminds me of one of my favorites from my Mom, which I will eventually upload. I wonder if it could be Matisse or Renoir? Did they always have marks? In any case, I like it and that's what counts!
UPDATE 5.23.21 After some further research, I believe this is an unsigned bracelet by REBAJE from the 1950s. What convinced me were images on ebay by this artist that look like variations on this very same motif. Francisco Rebajes (1905 to 1990) was originally from the Dominican Republic. He came to the USA when he was 15. He began making art from tin cans and was discovered by gallery owners and his work became highly collectable. He worked in copper, silver and other metals.
