A Villasana Mexican silver Clamper Bracelet ~ dynamic Taxco repousse

on Dec 6, 2016 in archived


Vintage Alfredo Villasana sterling silver repousse clamper bracelet in what I consider to be his most dynamic, full of motion design. I have sold this design a couple of times in the past yet it never ceases to impress me whenever I stumble upon another example. And I think that it looks its best worn over a long, black sleeve that allows the cut-outs in the bracelet to take center stage…


Size/Weight: 7″ inner circumference; width between a whopping 4″ wide at center front and 1″ on either side of the hinge; 69.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully signed with Villasana’s conjoined initials as shown and bears Eagle 3 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with a a snappy, tight hinge, patina that accentuates the design’s masterful use of positive and negative space, and no damage or repairs noted


SOLD – Thank you!
