bold 50s Mexican silver Bracelet in a modernist A. Pineda design

on Nov 24, 2015 in archived


A really challenging piece to photograph – all those surfaces that curve and turn and face each other just won’t behave! – yet equally impressive and inventive in its design, this bracelet is based on a creation by Antonio Pineda that seems quite difficult to find. Signed by an unidentified maker in our case, it has powerful presence, the “sharpness” of the links’  pointy ends softened by the warm caramel and brown tones in the tortoise shell inlay…


Size/Weight: 6  1/2″ inner circumference (clasped; perfect for medium to smaller wrists); width 7/8″; 88.6 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials as shown as well as “TAXCO MEXICO 925” and Eagle 2 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with great patina, no flaws in the inlay, quite comfortable to wear and stupendous to look at


SOLD – Thank you!
