Great Vintage Finds

I bought this great vintage sterling silver cuff fork bracelet at the Chelsea Flea Market in New York City this weekend. The bracelet possibly from the 1970's is solid and heavy to the touch and marked inside Towle Sterling "Candlelight". Of course I did some research on the designer and found out that Towle Silversmiths was formed as the Towle Manufacturing Co. in 1882 in Newburyport, Massachusetts and is considered one of the most prestigious silver manufacturers in the United States. The company is best known for its Towle forks and flatware patterns. Over the years, Towle has created numerous sterling silver flatware patterns including the "Candlelight" pattern designed in 1934; in addition to creating beautiful jewelry.
