Splendid early Deco Mexican silver repousse cuff bracelet, this is an anonymous piece yet without any doubt one of the first, most daring attempts at employing the art of repoussage to coax stunning form out silver. Powerful sense of motion, deep oxidized recesses, accent beading and generous proportions combine in a jaw-dropping piece.
