I’ve been trying to find time to post this one since it came in via twitter a couple of days ago, because it’s absolutely fascinating, and I’m sure there will be readers out there who can help Peter Carroll with this unusual enquiry.
My nan passed away a week ago on Saturday.
Amongst her things was this bracelet. We thought it was possibly a birth bracelet of some kind? We can’t find anything like it.
She was born in 1920 in Dudley.
Anything else you need, just ask.
First of all, my sincerest condolences to Peter and his family for their sad loss. You have my deepest sympathies, and I’m sure those of the readers too.
Now, on to the bracelet. If you can’t read it on your screen, it says:
It looks to me hand engraved by someone perhaps not a well-practiced engraver, or one doing so for utility rather than ornament (note the guide lines for the text).
If any of you have any ideas, or can enlighten Peter, please do: Comment here, or mail me – BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
Thanks to Peter for a very intriguing question!
