luxurious Mexican Deco silver repousse Bracelet ~ Los Castillo Taxco paisley design

By in archived |

Dramatic Mexican Deco silver bracelet in an early Los Castillo design consisting of wide, paisley-shaped repousse links, this is an unsigned example yet I can assure you that it is en par with its “big name” inspiration in craftsmanship and also weight and proportions. Not a very common design, very flexible and comfortable to wear in its bracelet form, it evokes lavishly woven Indian fabrics and a sense of sublime luxury…   Size/Weight: 7 5/8″ long (wearable) by 1 5/8″ wide; 76.2 grams Hallmarks / Date: “STERLING MEXICO”; pre-1948 period Condition: excellent vintage with what seems to be original patina, its raised surfaces warmly glowing, smooth as silk around the wrist and with no damage or repairs noted   SOLD – Thank you!

I have had pectorals by him mostly and this bracelet came as a surprise – a very happy one, I should add.
