exceptional Deco Mexican silver Bracelet multi-row beaded repousse with turquoise

on Oct 26, 2014 in archived


Exceptional early Deco Taxco silver bracelet, its two parts formed by rows of repousse semi-spheres accented with green turquoise cabochons. This is one of my favorite forms in an exuberant design that never fails to attract attention. Bracelets like this come in a variety of widths – this one is, I believe, the widest you can get with eight rows of beads that, in the front panel, are enhanced by overlaid rows of stone and smaller beads. An iconic Mexican “statement” piece…


Size/Weight: 7″ inner circumference (clasped)by 2  1/8″ wide; 88.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “BGM” as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO D.F. 0925”; 1930s-40s

Condition: very good vintage with great patina, soothing green color in the stones and the added security of a safety chain; there are a couple of semi-spheres with light impressions in them (one located in the upper perimeter, the second in the lower) but they are not readily noticeable nor do they affect the bracelet’s beauty in any way
