modernist Marcel Boucher Parisina Mexican silver Bracelet

By in archived |

Rare and hence avidly collected, Marcel Boucher’s Parisina line was crafted in Mexico for a few years around WWII. The sterling silver bracelet at hand is quite a find – slick and very very mod, with an inventive clasp that blends into the piece when you have it on but still has two little beads on the link that holds it so you can find it again, and with generous in size, prong-set amethyst glass gems adorning it. A sparkling little treasure for fans of Boucher and lovers of vintage Mexican jewelry as well…   Size/Weight: approx. 6  3/4″ inner circumference (clasped; perfect for medium to smaller wrists); just above 3/4″ wide; 53.6 grams Hallmarks / Date: “PARISINA” and “STERLING MEXICO”; mid-1940s Condition: excellent vintage, with beautifully colored amethyst glass gems, very slick and comfortable to wear, and no problems...
