This vintage rare Selini jewellery is in fantastic condition. This rare signed SELINI clown face bracelet is a lovely example of genuine SELINI jewellery. Most Selini or Selro jewellery pieces were not signed.
Featuring five linked shiny silver rhodium plated sections, this chunky wide bracelet is a real statement piece. Three of the links are wider and feature a 3D effect clown face in open metal work, with two smaller links with open metalwork scrolls.
The 1960s bracelet is very unusual and would be a great addition for SELRO/SELINI collectors, clown collectors or simply because it looks great on.
Despite it’s size the open metalwork makes it fairly light. It weighs 61 grams. It measures 19 cm (7.5 inches) x 5 cm. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
About SELRO and SELINI jewellery
Although often used together the jewellery is rarely from both SELRO (which was a company started in the US in the 1940s by Paul Selenger) and SELINI which was another company run by Selenger. Selenger was responsible for the design of Selenger/Selini pieces.
Famous for the ‘Many faces’ of Selro – the jewellery featured Asian faces and this is what the company is most famous for.
Much of Selro/Selini jewelry is unsigned and was originally hang-tagged. There are some clues, however, to identifying unmarked Selro/Selini jewelry. Much of what is sold as SELRO/SELINI is not actually produced by them. Signed pieces are very rare.
