vintage Taxco Arte En Plata Mexican silver mod Cuff Bracelet ~ sublime minimalism

on Jan 27, 2015 in archived


Vintage mid-century mod Mexican silver cuff bracelet, this piece is a veritable ode to the sublime nature of  minimalism. I adore the perfection of the curve, the heftiness of the architectural band, the fantastic patina. We don’t know much about Taxco’s Arte en Plata yet but I think the “arte” in their name is well-deserved…

Hallmarks / Date: “ARTE EN PLATA” as well as initials “AJ”, “STERLING TAXCO MEXICO”, Eagle 2 assay mark and what seems to be des. no B 142; 1950s-60s
