Heavy, magnificently made, with a patina that bespeaks the love and attention it has enjoyed over its long life, a modernist Mexican bracelet wrought in high purity 970 silver and adorned with amethyst cabochons. This is obviously emulating Antonio Pineda's design and the craftsmanship here is equally exceptional. Signed by a maestro who, even though listed, has not been identified yet and whose Pineda style work I have come to appreciate for its amazing quality and heft, the bracelet has an inner circumference of 7" (clasped) with links that are an incredible 1/4" thick and 7/8" wide. It weighs 131.3 grams and is signed with initials "MCI" as well as "970 MEXICO TAXCO" alongside Eagle 3 assay mark. It dates in the 1960s most probably and is in excellent vintage condition with no flaws noted and the added security of a safety chain - a fantastic alternative to Antonio's original.
