Emma Melendez early Mexican modernist silver Cuff Bracelet in a Hubert Harmon design

on Jul 22, 2017 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American

Early Taxco modernist sterling silver cuff bracelet bearing the signature of accomplished Mexican designer and silversmith Emma Melendez, this piece is more an arm band than a simple cuff. I believe its design is inspired by Hubert Harmon’s bold creations and it is the ideal piece to bring out the warrior princess hiding within you. Daring, no-fuss yet absolutely commanding presence and a wonderfully mellow patina underscore a modernist less-is-more attitude…

 

Size/Weight: 7 1/8″ inner circumference (at about mid-height; the cuff is wider than that at the top and narrower at the very bottom to better fit the shape of the arm); width between 3″ at center front and 1  7/8″ at the two ends; 83.8 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature “EMMA” as well as “STERLING TAXCO”; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with bold, commanding presence, a warmly glowing patina, very well made and without unsightly damage or repairs

 

SOLD – Thank you!
