Vintage Aguilar Design Rope Braid Mexican Bracelet

This elegant yet simple bracelet features a braided rope design and is a prime example of the fine Mexican craftsmanship that experienced notoriety during the 1930's-'40's because of the William Spratling influence and patronage. Spratling fostered an industry in Taxco, but the concept spread throughout several cities in Mexico. Fine silver jewelry craftsmanship was raised to a supreme level that is emulated still. This magnificent bracelet can be adjusted to fit just about any wrist, and is thick, wide, and weighs a substantial 35.5 grams. It is impeccably constructed with channels and crevices set off by black niello. This technique makes the patterns in the braid more prominent and accentuates the textural quality of the design. It is marked "925", and probably pre-1948 because of no Eagle mark nor letter-numbering system shown. This design is very similar to a Hector Aguilar bracelet. The bracelet measures approximately 7" long end-to-end and is 1" wide, with a 1/4" opening which can vary depending on your wrist size. It is in excellent vintage condition. This is a stunning and hefty piece that is bound to get noticed!
