Description

A Victorian sterling silver clamper bracelet, engraved with a lakeside scene, beside which stand two storks, while three more fly overhead, their long legs dangling behind them. A butterfly flutters above the water and plants are shown growing through the water and on the banks at either side.

This is a lovely example of Victorian Aesthetic Movement design, a style that grew in popularity in the late 1800s as a contrast to the heavier and more fussy Victorian styles of previous decades. The use of a stork as a symbol for family and new life was already established long before the Victorians used it to explain where new babies came from to young children, creating the wonderful myth of a stork delivering newborns in its beak!
