Deco FarFan Mexican silver Bracelet ~ rare design with cascabeles

on Dec 30, 2016 in archived

Vintage Deco FarFan silver bracelet in a rare design featuring musical cascabeles dangling off its repousse links. One of my favorite “less celebrated” makers, Plateria FarFan operated in Mexico City and their designs can be spectacular at times. The bracelet at hand is one of the taller’s most brilliant moments – the fleshy roundness of the stylized little bells, the perfectly executed repoussage, the silkiness of the whole ensemble is beyond words. Sweetly melodic and so “ethnic”…



Size/Weight: 7  7/8″ long (wearable) by 1  5/8″ wide (including the drop of the cascabeles); 77.6 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully signed with FarFan’s name as well as “STERLING’ and ‘HECHO EN MEXICO D/F.”; pre-1948
