early Hector Aguilar Mexican silver “pillow” Bracelet ~ a Taxco classic

By in archived |

Pictured in Penny Morril’s “Silver Masters of Mexico” on p. 136, this early Hector Aguilar bracelet is one of his “pillow” link designs, wrought here in sterling silver. Dating around 1945, it already employs the hidden hinge technique that Aguilar became known for, with the hinges in our case having been shaped in a way that anticipates the maestro’s later massive “bullet” bracelet… Learn more Size/Weight: 7  3/8″ long yet wears more like a 6  1/2″ to 6  3/4″ piece due to the shape of the links;  7/8″ wide; 54.5 grams Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately signed as shown; combination of hallmarks is from the 1940-1945 period Condition: excellent vintage with nice patina and no repairs or damage – an early Aguilar classic ON HOLD – please inquire!
