Signed by Torres this vintage Portuguese silver bracelet stylistically belongs in the Deco years yet its hallmarks indicate that it was made in Porto most probably in the 1980s. Definitely a Deco Revival piece, it recreates that period’s love of everything “exotic” and “wild” with the procession of elephants decorating it all around. Following each other, the animals are shown in relief in a landscape of tropical foliage and flowers. The patina is exquisite and it brings out the sculptural quality of the designs and the elephants beautifully depicted…
