Unmarked as is the case with many studio pieces from the 1950s-60s, a visually powerful hand-wrought silver mod bracelet. What is very impressive about this cuff is the different depths of field the eye has to rest on. Hand-hammered and heavily oxidized, it is adorned with applied biomorphic spheres and a raised rim all around its perimeter...

Unusual in its combination of figural and luscious floral links this is an early Deco Flli Peruzzi Italian silver bracelet, possibly a memento of a young lady's Grand Tour of Europe. Famous for their Renaissance Revival jewelry, the Peruzzi Bros are one of the oldest jewelers in Italy and still in operation today yet it is their vintage pieces that are avidly sought after...

For the lovers of vintage Mexican silver jewelry who are also lovers of equines, a gorgeous set of Margot de Taxco sterling repousse cufflinks in the shape of a horse head. I find the animal's portrait majestic - the way it holds its head allows its strength and beauty to come out in the best possible way. Each cufflink is 1 1/8" tall by 7/8" wide and the set weighs 10.8 grams. It is fully signed with Margot's name as well as with a badly stamped Eagle mark and des. no 5160...

Based on a Salvador Teran design, the bracelet at hand is a great match to the Taller Taxco necklace also currently available in my inventory (please look for item no 1229490). Pre-Colombian motifs with a mod twist in their interpretation make for a visually stimulating and definitely different piece...

A piece from the opening years of the Los Castillo taller this is a simply stunning bracelet! Despite the almost minimalist design, the cuff is breath-taking with its huge black onyx cab that centers its face and glistens whenever the light hits it. The sterling frame has thick twist-rope accents while big fleur-de-lis motifs flank the stone...

Smooth as silk around the wrist, a vintage Los Castillo sterling silver bracelet based on a pre-Colombian motif executed en repoussage. The craftsmanship here is splendid - deep chasing with dark oxidation and perfect beaded details add depth and dimension to the warmly patina-ed links. The bracelet measures a wearable 6 3/4" (overall length is 7 3/8") by 7/8" wide and it weighs 42.0 grams. It is fully and appropriately signed with the Los Castillo name as well as Eagle 15 assay mark and des...

In one of my favorite pre-1948 Mexican silver designs, this fruit-and leaf necklace and earrings set is impeccably made and has an almost true-to-life quality. Sometimes signed by maker but quite often not, this specific design can be found in mixed metals as well and it never fails to attract the eye with the luscious curves of its fruit and the deep veining and serrated edges of its leaves...

Early Mexican Deco repousse silver necklace in a design closely associated with Matilde Poulat, I believe this piece to have been made in Mexico City where Matl worked as well and it bears the signature of a listed maker about whom we don't really know much more. Nicely made, with good sculpturality in the graduated rose links and a hefty, hand-wrought chain that helps adjust the necklace's length, this is a beautiful example of repoussage from the opening decades of the 20th c....

Stupendously beautiful, a vintage Deco Mexican silver bracelet that is not for the faint of heart! This is one of the most impressive, visually stunning examples of Mexico's early 20th c. jewelry I have seen. Its tall panels are profusely decorated with wirework and beading and set with two yummy, big amethyst cabochons each. Early as its pin-style clasp reveals and absolutely breath-taking it measures 7 3/4" in inner circumference (clasped) by 2 1/2" wide and weighs a whopping 179.6 grams...

Having worked as early as at least the middle Taxco period, maestro Morales is known for his high quality jewelry in the style of Matilde Poulat. The cross pendant necklace I am presenting here is from the post-1980 period yet retains the attention to workmanship, materials and finishing that his earlier pieces are collected for. And the fact that it comes with its original, heavy chain dating in the same period as the pendant is an added bonus...

Fabulous Jens Asby Danish modernist silver necklace featuring dangles in varied lengths with circlets hanging off a slick neck ring. Quintessential 1960s-70s elegance, very attractive in its minimalism and a pleasure to wear, the necklace has an inner circumference of 14 1/4" (clasped). Its dangles cluster is 4 1/4" long (at its longest) and 3 5/8" wide (at its widest) and the piece weighs 53.0 grams...

Stupendous - literally - Francisco Rivera for Emma bracelet in an "archeological" design, this is a cuff fit for a warrior princess! Hefty, meticulously worked and perfectly finished, it exudes confidence and represents the epitome of the "statement" bracelet. It is tapered so as to better fit the lower arm / wrist and its inner circumference at mid-height is 6 1/2" (including the 1 1/4" gap; I have a 5 3/4" wrist and I can wear it pushed 1 3/4" above the wrist bone). The cuff's height reach...

Designed for David Andersen by Bjorn Sigurd Ostern a vintage 1960s sterling silver and enamel pendant necklace with an original Andersen neck ring. This design is referred to as "Thor's Hammer" and in our case it comes in stunning shades of blue. I love the hand-hammered finish of the torque and the set's slick elegance. The pendant is just shy of 2" tall by 1 7/16" wide while the neck ring has an inner circumference of 15 5/8" (including the 7/8" gap; yet relatively adjustable). The set weigh...

Another one of my Taller Taxco treasures, this necklace, obviously based on Salvador Teran's design, came to me with a matching bracelet (by yet a different maker) which I will be presenting in the next few days. An intriguing taller, its relationship (or lack thereof?) to Teran still remains cloudy yet its emulations of Salvador's jewelry are of the highest quality and craftsmanship. The choker at hand, a reinterpretation of a pre-Colombian motif within the context of the mid-20th c. is simply ...

A maestro whose work does not come up often yet whose jewelry can be exceptional in design and craftsmanship, Lico is listed but details of his life still elude us. I have had a few of his jewelry over the years and I can say that his repoussage is stunning and his creations boast eye-catching proportions. The clamper at hand is a known design for him - big, bold and beautiful with deeply incised repoussage, a strong sense of movement in the swirls and turns at center front and patina that accen...
