Deco Mexican silver Maciel style repousse Cuff Bracelet by Real Factory

on Apr 21, 2014 in archived

In the style popularized by Maciel, a generously wide repousse silver cuff bracelet bearing the signature “Real SILVER Factory”. I have never had a Real (as in royal, I am assuming, and not …real) piece before nor do we seem to know much about them even though they are listed and I have encountered at least one other inquiry for help on the specific maker. Anonymity, however, does not seem to have affected the quality of their work. Wide, made out of silver sheet with good thickness so less flexible than most the bracelet at hand features a gorgeous floral design that continues all around.

And what about the repoussage itself? Proud, confident and intense – all attributes you want to see in an excellent example of the genre…
