This exceptional and original set of French bracelet charms has been crafted in 18ct and 21ct yellow gold.

The eight charms relate directly to the Napoleonic Hussars, each charm being a realistic representation an item of clothing or weaponry.

The charms include:

A shako (hat), a pelisse (jacket), a boot, a sabretache (pouch) engraved with the initial 'N', a muskatoon/carbine (rifle), a cuirassier (sword), a cannon and a violin.

(The violin may not be directly related to the Hussars, however, it was claimed that Napoleon played a violin whilst in exile on the island of Elba!)

Each charm has been finely modelled, with exceptional attention to detail, and hallmarked with the French restricted warranty hallmark for Paris (circa 1810).

Each charm may be suspended via an integrated suspension loop or loop and chain.

These impressive antique gold charms are fitted to the original hinged, leather, gilt tooled presentation case which secures with a hinged clasp.

Each charm has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as either 18ct or 21ct gold (see Dimensions below for details).
