One Good Eye Silver
$1,100.00
Early Deco Mexican sterling silver repousse bracelet adorned with a carved jade masquette set in a bezel, this is a piece right out of Mexico City's early 20th c. tradition that is closely associated with the work of Matilde Poulat, P. Ochoa and A. Tobias. The example I am presenting here is not signed for maker and consists of three curved pieces held together by hidden pins...

The second Margot de Taxco zodiac charm bracelet currently in my inventory (please see listing no 1223198 for a Virgo example), this piece is the ideal gift for that Aries in your life. Here too the sculpturality and heft of Margot's astrological charms is evident and the patina just what you want to see on jewelry that has been well loved and cared for. The chain is proportionately perfect for the charm and enhances the bracelet's weight and substance...

Margot de Taxco's zodiac charms are among collectors' favorites yet to find a complete charm bracelet, with both components bearing her signature is much more difficult than getting the charm alone. I am therefore thrilled to offer this hefty Aquarius example here. Just take a look at the gorgeous, generous sterling links - they provide the perfect accompaniment to show off the voluptuousness of the astrological sign's figural representation. And let me mention that the patina is to die for...

An early Deco Mexican silver bracelet, most probably out of Mexico City, and very much in the style that came to be associated with Matilde Poulat's designs. In fact, this is a variation of Matl's very difficult to find "Moth" design and a very well crafted piece at that. Instead of repousse the links here are cast in .900 silver making for a quite substantial piece that feels divine around the wrist...

A rarely surfacing example of Margot de Taxco's distinctive brooches in which she combined silver with faceted gems and carved ivory figurines the piece presented here is true museum quality and a must-have for the serious Margot collector. To me it looks more like a work of art, something that you would proudly display among your most precious antiques, than merely a piece of jewelry...

There is almost no information about maestro M. Velazquez other than his hallmarks which put him right at the opening decades of Mexico's 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Yet I have watched his jewelry rise in popularity over the last few years not only because of its inherent quality but also because they offers an excellent alternative to Matilde Poulat's pieces as they become scarcer and almost prohibitively expensive for most of us...

Talented, eccentric and not very prolific (at least where his Mexican pieces are concerned) Hubert Harmon spent a few years in Taxco in the 1940s and created some of the most beautiful, difficult to find examples of Taxco design. The repousse silver snakes and fish belt buckle at hand is a known Harmon creation yet doesn't bear his signature so I am offering it here as an unsigned piece and this is reflected in its pricing...

Iconic Abraham Paz silver and black onyx bracelet in the "shields" design, this is not an easy to find piece and I am thrilled to be offering it here. The epitome of Mexican Deco, Paz's creations appeared also with Fred Davis's hallmarks but the example at hand bears Paz's own signature. The bracelet measures 7 1/4" long (wearable; actual length is 7 1/2") by 1 1/8" wide and weighs 43.2 grams...

Until well into the 20th c. conducting one's own archaelogical dig was not prohibited in Mexico - both Spratling and Davis are known to have engaged in personal digs and their collections were frequently enriched by the fruits of those excavations. Quite often ancient, pre-Colombian beads as well as small stone artifacts that surfaced here and there were incorporated in pieces of jewelry silversmiths made in the first decades of Mexico's Silver Renaissance...

An early bracelet by Hector Aguilar, its design presaging in a way his massive "bullet" piece, this is so comfortable and easy to wear! The "bullet" shaped hidden hinges allow it to conform to your every move - you will love the way it hugs the wrist. This is also a bracelet you can wear any time, anywhere - Aguilar's jewelry is magnificent but many of his creations you cannot just don and get out the door.....

I have had this repousse leaves design before in necklaces and bracelets yet this is my first piece signed by its originators, the Los Castillo taller. I just cannot get over the fleshiness of the repoussage and the fantastic way the silver glistens and darkens as the eye proceeds from the raised surfaces to the deeper recesses in the veins of each leaf. Simplicity in all its elegance yet definitely not simplistic at all! The necklace is a choker size measuring a wearable 15" long...

The second Erika Hult de Corral bracelet currently in my inventory (please look for item no 1189406 as well), this piece is absolutely fabulous. Quite substantial yet still comfortable to wear, its mod sterling links are studded with green, mossy agates. The bracelet feels divine around the wrist and as rare as Ric bracelets are, the specific design is even more difficult to come upon. With an inner circumference of 6 5/8" (clasped), it is perfect for smaller to medium wrists. Its width comes u...

Simply marked with Eagle 3 assay number alongside "TAXCO MEXICO 925" a vintage mod necklace in emulation of Antonio Pineda's similar design combining sterling with chunky oval chrysoprase gems. Like stylized leaves or waves, the repousse setting tenderly hugs the stones that are otherwise held in a raised sterling frame. The waves are then continued in the chain, more elongated this time. Fantastic patina and the semi-translucence of the stones combined with the architecturality of the des...

Famous for the masterful, seamless way he combines silver and stone, Enrique Ledesma needs no further introduction to the lover of Mexican silver jewelry. His modernist designs prove that elegance is definitely not fussy - and the bracelet at hand illustrates, I believe, the statement in the best possible way. Chunky, curved half-barrel links, their faces shared diagonally by sterling and stone inlay, securely yet comfortably held together by smoothly working hinges. The patina is to die for and...

Superb Reveriano Castillo necklace, hand-cut out of thick gauge silver sheet, deeply chased and adrnred with beading and faceted amethyst stones. An exquisite Reveri creation - craftsmanship of the highest caliber, immaculate finishing, very good weight and gorgeous gems - all in a necklace that wears like a dream. Its wearable length is 15 1/2" while the central part with the amethysts measures 6 3/4" end to end and is 1 1/8" tall. At the chain the width is 1/2" and the piece's weight regist...

Based on the dramatic contrast of highly polished silver against dark, oxidized backgrounds, Sigi's jewelry is eye-catching without having to be burdensomely elaborate. The necklace at hand illustrates, I believe, my assertion in the best possible way. Gorgeous, a pleasure to wear and to behold, and a true Tasco (sic) modernist treasure. It measures just shy of 16" long (wearable) with the central mirrored part of it being 4" wide and 1" tall (at its tallest); the width of the chain itself is 5/...

An early design for the Los Castillo taller, I don't know what one would call this piece if not iconic and classic. In my mind, the "fern" motif is closely associated with vintage Mexican clamper bracelets. It has been produced for decades due to its popularity and demand and can be found with all kinds of signatures or simple "generic" Deco hallmarks. Yet when you experience the substantial presence of the Los Castillo rendition, when you hold it in your hands and feel the weight, when you ...

Absolutely gorgeous Matilde Poulat ring in a more difficult to find oval shape, all adorned with turquoise set in Matl's easily recognizable ornate wirework. I consider her rings simply amazing and love wearing them - one of her pieces is enough even when you go out for a formal dinner. The ring is a size 5.75 and its face is 1 1/8" by 7/8". It weighs 9.4 grams and is signed "Malt 925" and "Mexico" in etched script. In very good vintage condition with a tiny area on the perimeter of the st...
