M. Ocampo Mexican silver thick rope chain and tassels Bracelet

on Mar 27, 2020 in archived

Thick twist-rope lariat necklaces with luscious tassel ends are among the designs that Mexican maestros in the 1940s and 1950s worked with but to find a matching bracelet for those necklaces is a not-as-easily-accomplished feat. I am therefore thrilled to be presenting this example by Taxco silversmith M. Ocampo, one among the few who are known for their tasseled lariat jewelry. I also pulled out a pair of dangle earrings in the same design – this one by N. Jacopo – that are a perfect match for the bracelet. They are available separately but I added several photos here showing the assembled demi together in case you need to bring them both home…


Size/Weight: 7 1/8″ long (wearable); twist-rope chain is just shy of 1/2″ in diameter; tassels are 1 1/2″ long with the sphere at the top being 7/16″ in diameter; 45.5 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s name as shown as well as “TAXCO MEX 925”; pre-1948

Condition: excellent vintage with good weight, a rich fringe for each one of the tassels which bespeaks the bracelet’s quality, with no damage and no repairs noted



SOLD – Thank you!
