Early Taxco modernist sterling silver cuff bracelet bearing the signature of accomplished Mexican designer and silversmith Emma Melendez, this piece is more an arm band than a simple cuff. I believe its design is inspired by Hubert Harmon’s bold creations and it is the ideal piece to bring out the warrior princess hiding within you. Daring, no-fuss yet absolutely commanding presence and a wonderfully mellow patina underscore a modernist less-is-more attitude…
Size/Weight: 7 1/8″ inner circumference (at about mid-height; the cuff is wider than that at the top and narrower at the very bottom to better fit the shape of the arm); width between 3″ at center front and 1 7/8″ at the two ends; 83.8 grams
Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature “EMMA” as well as “STERLING TAXCO”; 1940s
Condition: excellent vintage with bold, commanding presence, a warmly glowing patina, very well made and without unsightly damage or repairs
