Recently I found a very high quality French sterling & 18k dog's head motif bangle bracelet. The maker's mark is A B & Cie over a cog or gear shape. I couldn't figure out who A. B. & Company is. Can anybody help? I'll post pictures tonight or tomorrow.

Could be Arthus Bertrand et Cie., jeweler and goldsmith, established in 1911 in Paris on the Rue de Rennes. The cogwheel should have a star on top if it is Bertrand.

Thanks, Kayvee!

I spent about 2 hours trying to figure it out. Which reference did you use?

Thanks for showing these lovely bracelets. Such lifelike modeling!

I'd love to tell you that I knew the mark all along, but in fact I consulted the French Ministry of Culture website for marks.
