Los Castillo Mexican silver and black onyx cuff Bracelet ~ early design no 304

on Feb 24, 2015 in archived


Early Taxco Deco Los Castillo sterling silver and black onyx cuff bracelet, des. no 304 betrays the taller’s strong connections with the country’s rich cultural heritage and foreshadows their brilliant future in incorporating ancient motifs into their jewelry. Here the massive stone occupies center stage with oversized leaves flanking it and thick twist-rope accenting the bezel. Impressive in proportions and a fantastic example of less-is-more design…


Size/Weight: 6  3/4″ inner circumference (including the 15/16″ gap yet relatively adjustable; I would advise caution if trying to adjust so as not to damage the cuff); width between 1  1/4″ at center front and 1/2″; 62.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: “LOS CASTILLO TAXCO”, “MADE IN MEXICO STERLING” and des. no 304; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with a beautifully black stone, impressive to look at and with fantastic patina



SOLD – Thank you!
