Los Castillo Mexican 980 silver Cuff Bracelet ~ early Taxco wave design

on Jul 1, 2015 in archived


Thick silver of high purity with deeply chased and oxidized waves and swirls characterizes this early Los Castillo cuff bracelet wrought in a 980 alloy. One of my favorite cuff designs, I love its heft, the comfortable way it wears and the fantastic patina it has developed over its long life…


Size/Weight: 6  3/4″ inner circumference (including the 1  1/16″ gap; not adjustable due to the thickness of the silver); 3/4″ wide (at its widest); 40.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date: taller’s signature in early, raised straight lettering as well as “980 TAXCO” and des. no 242; early 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with patina to die for, sweeping, fluid lines in the design and no flaws noted


SOLD – Thank you!
