Mexican Deco silver and amethyst multi-row beaded Bracelet

on May 24, 2020 in archived

Rows of scrumptious, glistening repousse semi-spheres make up this Mexican Deco sterling silver hinged bracelet. If you follow One Good Eye Silver, you know that this is one of my absolute favorite designs from the period. I am obsessed with it and I look for good examples all the time even though it is becoming more and more difficult to come upon them. Of medium width, the example at hand has oxidized recesses and it is amethyst cabs that rest over the first layer of semi-spheres in the front “wing”. Securely clasped around the wrist with an old type yet very tight pin clasp, this is the kind of bracelet that will never fail to attract attention…

Size/Weight: 7 1/8″ inner circumference (clasped) by 1 3/8″ wide; 58.8 grams

Hallmarks / Date: “STERLING MEXICO”; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage – I don’t even see any dings in the repoussage which is unexpected with type of bracelet! – with fantastic patina, beautiful amethyst cabs securely set in their bezels, with no damage and no repairs noted

Inv.#15056
