Hilario Lopez Mexican silver Clamper Bracelet in a Margot de Taxco design

on Dec 11, 2016 in archived

Vintage Hilario Lopez Mexican silver clamper bracelet in one of Margot de Taxco’s most sculptural designs. I love the refer to this as the “cornucopia” – something in it brings to mind the mythical horn of plenty. Among Margot’s most talented maestros, Hilario Lopez continued crafting jewelry in her style even after she closed her workshop and withdrew from the field. His renditions are impeccably finished, with masterful repoussage, attention to detail and good weight albeit not as hefty as Margot’s originals…



Size/Weight: 6  1/2″ inner circumference (perfect for us who always wanted one but couldn’t find a small size); width between 12  1/4″ at center front and 7/8″ at its narrowest; 51.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Lopez’s initials “HL” as well as “STERLING TAXCO 925”, “MEXICO” and bears Eagle 3 assay mark; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage, bold and beautiful, with great patina, a very tight, snappy hinge and no damage or repairs noted
