    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.

      It appears from the pic that you posted that the item is copper coloured, and not base copper, I especially see that in the links. I see also a worn part in 3rd pic which is grey or black and seems to be base metal colour. As you know, this is what I get from pics, but someone may see something else :~)

      I don't think this is unmarked Renior or Matisse, but it's from the 50's-60's.

      Hi folks!
      Phil, I think you are correct, it is not copper. It just has a coppery colored alloy of some kind.
      valentino97 thanks for your thoughts. I think you are also correct on both accounts. Jenni thanks for your comment! --Andrea

      You said it... "I like it and that's what counts"!
      I mean why would you purchase a piece you didn't like? LoL
      Very pretty "copper" bracelet Andrea.

      Hello friends-- I updated and reversed my original remarks-- I now believe this is an unsigned copper bracelet by Rebaje. (see the description above). If anyone can confirm or deny, I would love to hear it! Thanks.
