Gold bracelets

Pair of identical gold bracelets made in the 1870s and used in Red Wing, Minnesota.  The engraved low-relief design features flower and leaf elements.  The inside of each bangle is polished smooth.  A push of a small button on the side reveals a box clasp set inside the hollow bangle.  One bracelet opens on hinges but is constricted by an attatched gold safety chain; the other is missing its safety chain.
