This Lapponia flame bronze bracelet was designed by leading Finnish designer Björn Weckström. This bracelet has an industrial style and the name ‘Mauser’, as some other items in the Flame Bronze Collection,has a military tone. The name ‘Flame Bronze’ refers to the dark purple-blue-grey finish which was very difficult to achieve. The series was only produced for a short while in the 1970s and the flame (or fire) bronze finish was not used on later pieces. 

The bracelet, length 18 cm, is comprised of four links, has a strong lobster-claw catch, and is in excellent used condition. It could be worn by either women or men.

Card payments accepted.
