1936 Bracelet Patent & Original Sketch

Monocraft did a number of different initial bracelets starting in late 1935 and into 1936. My guess is the Chernows may have been taking small steps towards entering the jewelry business. They were both notorious for  thinking things over for long periods of time before taking that final step. The patent for an initial bracelet is from 1936, while the sketch  by Mario “Granny” Granville is  for a bracelet similar to the one in the patent but with different style intials.
