Rare Japanned Deep Siam Red Sherman Bracelet, Signed
The bracelet was made by Gustave Sherman in Canada sometime in the 50's to 1960's. Sherman Jewellery is highly collectible and hard to get from dealers in the states because of duties charged and not sure if I will get the duties back after I make a claim ! I love to see the pieces come home to Canada.
Sometimes in your hunt for the next best rare piece, one forgets about the best treasures they already own. When I first started to collect I bought this Siam Red bracelet. I had learned early about Siam Red being a very rare colour in Sherman Jewellery, mostly in bracelets and necklaces. There are a lot of brooches made although unless they are part of a parure, they have far less rarity. A very high end brooch would be hard to find in any colour esp Siam Red.
Siam refers to blood red colour of the deepest of reds. It is mesmerizing on a bracelet for instance. Bracelets are what I collect most of when it comes to Sherman so it is important to have one this colour.
