Margot de Taxco Mexican silver Cuff Bracelet ~ figure eight des. 5100

on Apr 6, 2018 in archived

One of those designs that one has to see in person to appreciate its beauty, “figure eight” (as it is often referred to) is Margot de Taxco experimenting with modernism. Minimalist, with effortlessly fluid lines that cross over each other, curve and come around, the cuff’s only extra adornment is the hand-hammered, highly oxidized field. Exquisite design does not have to be fussy – and Margot’s des. 5100 is an excellent illustration thereof…

PS: The matching necklace and earrings are also available and will be offered shortly – if you don’t see them, just ask!


Size/Weight: inner circumference of 6 5/8″ (including the 7/8″ gap; your jeweler could probably open it up a little more yet I would not recommend trying to adjust it yourselves); width between 1 3/4″ at center front and 3/8″ at its narrowest; 47.0 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully marked with Margot’s logo as well as des. no 5100 and an old-style Eagle 16 assay mark; 1950s

Condition: excellent vintage with no damage or repairs noted, great patina and its oxidation is very good shape as well
