The bangle is decorated with a big faceted peridot stone and can be put over the wrist. Inside were probably stored yarn, crochet hook and a handkerchief, which the lady was working on. At the rim is mounted an eye for the yarn. On the front and back side are two oval medailons with engraving and a year "1823". Marked (IFK), maker unknown. Very good condition!
