Shiebler-style bracelet (but not Shiebler), marked only STERLING, quite heavy, with busts of what look like Renaissance men (and maybe one woman?). Does anyone recognize the people? Are they artists, statesmen, philosophers, poets, just random dudes? I'm guessing c. 1880s, but does anyone have a better guess?

I think the guy in the middle, in the mob cap, may be Leonardo da Vinci. Does that help identify any of the others?

The back is plain, marked STERLING on the clasp:

Cool piece, Polly. Could the third from left be Shakespeare?

Thanks, June. I think Shakespeare is second from left. Starting to think the "lady" on the end may be Raphael.

The two on the left appears to be in military uniforms from civil war times.
Interesting piece.

Leonardo and Shakespeare are the only two I'm confident about.
