Vintage Deco Taxco sterling silver cuff bracelet adorned with amethyst cabochons and boasting bold, voluptuous repoussage. There is something very tactile about these pieces, a certain earthiness in the way the maestros executed the design while experimenting with the technique. This is an early example – they are getting harder and harder to find – and unsigned, which in my experience happens from time to time with Mexican jewelry of this vintage. I have sold its matching necklace in the past – festoon half moon links with amethyst and cascabeles – and I just wish I had it now to present the two together…
Size/Weight: 6 1/2″ inner circumference (including the 1 1/16″ gap; perfect for smaller wrists; I would not recommend trying to adjust it – this might damage the repoussage – but your jeweler might be able to open it up somewhat); width between 2″ and 1″; 54.2 grams
Hallmarks / Date: unsigned yet guaranteed Mexican (I have sold the matching necklace in the past and in my experience early Taxco pieces were something not marked at all); tested and proved to be of sterling quality; 1930s-40s
Condition: excellent vintage in an early, difficult to come upon design, very nicely executed with bold repoussage and gorgeous stones rich in inclusions and free of any problems – a real stunner
SOLD – Thank you!
