French art deco phenolic amber and gilt metal bangle. Made by JHP Prissier – Jean Painleve.
This was a design made to promote L’Hippocompe in 1934 a film made by Painleve the French film maker. JP made another similar jewellery item which was a salamander.
It measures 1.5 inches (4cm) and is open to the front and will fit a medium sized wrist. But as it is open it can be squeezed larger or smaller so will fit most wrists.
Condition is very good.
