Mexican Deco 940 silver Clamper Bracelet ~ exquisite Taxco repousse

on Dec 15, 2015 in archived


A mystery maker yet a maestro of the highest caliber the maker of the Deco bracelet I am presenting here loves to work in fine, .940 purity silver and his jewelry is extraordinary. I have had pectorals by him mostly and this bracelet came as a surprise – a very happy one, I should add. Just take a look at the sculptural quality of the floral appliqués as they emerge from the stylized vases next to the hinge; the deep oxidation that renders them even more pronounced and the hand-chased details in the petals and leaves…


Size/Weight: 7″ inner circumference; width between 3  3/4″ and 1  1/8″; 62.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials” JS” as well as “MEXICO TAXCO” and “940”; 1930s-40s
