rare Mexican silver repousse Clamper Bracelet ~ Taxco calla lilies design

on Oct 24, 2017 in archived

A rare design – to my experience – and one of the most beautiful Mexican repousse clamper bracelets I have seen, this stunner is signed by a listed yet still anonymous Taxco maestro. Though comprised of familiar motifs (stylized callas and scrolls), the bracelet is unusual in the way it combines all these elements in a marriage that delights the eye and excites the imagination. The bold repoussage is further enhanced by oxidation while the raised surfaces glow with the warm patina of well-loved, well-aged silver…
