Since its earliest invention, glass was popular for jewelry and ornaments. Its translucent brilliance attracted the eye, while its rich colors imitated rarer and more costly gems. This lovely bracelet dates to a period when the art of ancient glassmaking was at its height. Its color is a myriad of delicate shades. On the background of dark purple, vibrant violet-blue, sapphire, veridian green, fiery red and orange dance about with the changes of light. Its narrow size indicates it was worn by a child; and we can easily imagine it was worn with pride. - (GF.0345)
