bold Mexican silver repousse Clamper Bracelet ~ Chinese Dragon or Feathered Serpent design

on Sep 27, 2017 in archived

Signed by a Mexican maestro whose silver repoussage I have come to appreciate and look for, the bracelet at hand is a veritable tour-de-force and one of those clampers that never goes unnoticed. I find it very difficult to decide whether the design depicts a Chinese dragon or Quetzalcoatl, the divine Feathered Serpent of the Maya; whichever the case, however, it is sublime!  Just take a close look at the details and the workmanship…

 

Size/Weight: 7″ inner circumference; width between 3  1/4″ and 1″; 59.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “CP” as well as “STERLING MEXICO TAXCO” and Eagle 3 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with bold, beautifully worked repoussage, in a design that will never go unnoticed and a tight, snappy hinge
