Vintage Deco Taxco sterling silver cuff bracelet adorned with amethyst cabochons and boasting bold, voluptuous repoussage. There is something very tactile about these pieces, a certain earthiness in the way the maestros executed the design while experimenting with the technique. This is an early example – they are getting harder and harder to find – and unsigned, which in my experience happens from time to time with Mexican jewelry of this vintage. I have sold its matching necklace in the past – festoon half moon links with amethysts and cascabeles – and I just wish I had it now to present the two together. The cuff has a
6 1/2″ inner circumference (including the 1 1/16″ gap; perfect for smaller wrists; I would not recommend trying to adjust it – this might damage the repoussage – but your jeweler might be able to open it up somewhat) and its width varies between 2″ and 1″. It weighs 54.2 grams and is
unsigned yet guaranteed Mexican and of sterling quality. It dates in the 1930s-40s and is in
excellent vintage condition with an early, difficult to come upon design, very nicely executed with bold repoussage and gorgeous stones rich in inclusions and free of any problems – a real stunner.
