I have a very old unique piece. The inside of the band is marked "The American Queen" and "Pat. Nov 5, 1907" and also "Pitman & Keeler". I also have the original red velvet and gold foiled box, which is beautiful itself, and reads "Lady Camille by BIGNEY" The bracelet has never been engraved and t is a space on the front for engraving. It is quite ornate and in excellent condition for it's age, and has a stretch band similar to a modern wristwatch...it looks as though this bracelet was barely, if ever worn, and is in superb condition for it's age. A rare treasure right ..don't miss it!About the maker: *S.O. Bigney & Company- Attleboro, Massachusetts. Advertised as early as 1903.
