It measures 23 1/2 end to end and weighs a substantial 2.27 oz troy (or 70+ g). Its identifying marks are found on the bolt-end ring: a winged hammer (Kultateollisuus Oy); smooshed assay stamp; 830H (metal content); Town mark (Turku); year date S7 (1971); and on the toggle, the initials BR_ likely the individual silversmith designer of the piece. Those of you who collect and wear Finland Jewelry will have a better understanding of these marks than I.
This is a cable linked piece with equi-distant biomorphic forms and'fancy' clasp closure. Of soldered construction it looks handmade although I feel confident the podded stations are in fact cast.Each side is different than the other and either (side) may be worn outwardly facing. I have used a U. Quarter to help you visualize component sizes -- if you need additional pics just let me know. It was sourced second hand from a San Francisco area vintage wares market other than this I have no specific history on this particular piece.
Please refer to images for your take on age, design and condition. Truly a modernist piece with brutalist influence it is solid and heavy in the hand, 46 years old and in excellent condition with some dark areas of oxidation. The toggle is in good working order and wears securely...
