elaborate Taxco Deco silver repousse Cuff Bracelet ~ a Mexican work of art

on Nov 11, 2016 in archived


Early Taxco sterling silver repousse bracelet signed by one of those telented maestros whose jewelry is widely appreciated for its quality yet are still among the “unsung” protagonists of Mexico’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance. This is a real masterpiece – not only in the complexity and vibrancy of its design but also in the perfection of its execution. Patina, oxidation, bold relief and dark recesses, all come together in a celebration of Taxco silversmithing…


Size/Weight: inner circumference just shy of 7″ (including the 7/8″ gap); width between 2 3/8″ at center front and 1 1/8″ at either end; 57.9 grams
