Los Castillo Mexican silver Cuff Bracelet ~ Taxco pre-Colombian double swirl design no 262

on Oct 10, 2016 in archived


Impressive Los Castillo sterling silver cuff bracelet in the taller’s double pre-Colombian swirl design, this is an early piece as is indicated by the straight capital letters signature and its low design number. Heavy gauge silver, dramatic hand-chasing and oxidation and beading combine in a virtual show-stopper. I have not touched the patina on it which I suspect might be original to the cuff and am thrilled to present it in the amazing condition it came to me in. A stunning, early Los Castillo treasure…
