Margot de Taxco Mexican silver hinged Bracelet, sculptural des. no 5243

on Jun 7, 2019 in archived

One of Margot’s most sculptural creations, this is also a bracelet that one needs to hold and run one’s fingers over its carved beauty in order to fully appreciate it. There are so many elements combined in this design: the Greek key, strategically placed beading, mirrored layered wings, cut-outs. Yet they all come together perfectly, none of them superfluous – the bracelet is tactile, even sexy, if I dare say so, and its weight feels so intimate around the wrist…


Size/Weight: 6.75″ inner circumference (clasped; perfect for smaller to medium wrists); width between 1 1/4″ and 1/2″; 54.6 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Margot’s signature as well as des. no 5243 and “MADE IN MEXICO STERLING; I don’t see an Eagle assay mark but I think that’s just an oversight; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage, with the quality of workmanship and the level of finishing Margot jewelry is known for, having great patina, exquisite sculpturality and no damage or repairs noted
