Antique ruby and pearl bangle made by Francis Flint in the early 1900’s
Francis Flint was one of the very few early Australian jewellers from Tasmania, making his jewellery quite rare and collectable. In 1896 he started a partnership with Joseph Quarmby to form Flint and Quarmby in Hobart, Tasmania, and two years later they each formed their own jewellery company, with Francis Flints being registered as F A Flint. This lasted until 1910 when it became 1914 when it became Flint & Co and then in 1931 F. A Flint Pty Ltd.
Early Australian jewellery is becoming very sought after, making this an even more unique and special piece.
