rare Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver Bracelet ~ Taxco modernist design

on Oct 14, 2017 in archived

Stunning Antonio Pineda modernist bracelet, this is one of the designer’s most creative pieces, I believe, for the incredible way he combined angularity and curvature. The bracelet’s commanding presence is enhanced by the juxtaposition of high purity silver and caramel-hued inlay, the marriage enhanced by warm patina. Not a very easy to find bracelet and a great example of Taxco modernism…

 

Size/Weight: 6  3/4″ inner circumference (clasped); width 7/8″; 103.8 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately signed with Antonio’s crown mark, “970” and Eagle assay mark (probably 208); mid- 1950s-1960

Condition: very good vintage condition with no repairs noted, fantastic looks and the inlay all secure in its setting; a couple of the panels have a small flake off one corner but those are rather shallow and don’t really attract attention nor affect the bracelet’s beauty

 

SOLD – Thank you!
