Vintage Coral Rococo cuff C. 1955
This very interesting cuff in sterling silver and coral was designed by Frank Patania Sr. and made in his Thunderbird Shop. My grandfather pushed himself ,as any artist should, into designing out of his comfort zone. This design is is very unusual for him to have done. I named it Rococo as an opposite to the usually very detailed Boroque style designs he is known for.
Almost 2 inches wide at the widest it tapers down to 1 inch. 7/8inch opeing the interior measures 6 inches but with the domed surface will fit smaller to 5 3/8 inches.
One chipped and repaired coral this piece is in good condition.
