I recently wrote that La Cucaracha, a retailer of high quality jewelry in Taxco, Mexico, is one of those signatures that one does not encounter very often as one hunts for vintage Mexican treasures. And here I am, presenting my second cuff bracelet of theirs in just the span of a few days. Yet this is the way things happen some times – you might be looking for something for years and not find anything and then, all of a sudden, you bump into two or three coveted examples...

Vintage Mexican silver repousse clamper bracelet in a classic fern design, this piece with its dramatically twisting tips was not made in Taxco, as is the norm, but in Iguala, one of the country’s big silversmithing centers. This specific version of the fern is a favorite of mine because of the powerful sense of movement it exudes and the fleshiness of its repoussage. Great oxidation deepens the recesses in the design and makes the raised surfaces glow with a warmth that captures the eye...

This substantial sterling silver bangle bracelet features a classic mid-century modernist design of an oblong shape with two flattened sides.

The surface exhibits a nicely aged patina, with a hint of tarnish. Inner dimensions are 2 1/2 inches by 2 1/8 inches. Weight: 33.2 grams

Not a very prolific taller, ProSa is nevertheless a name that I look for and whose pieces I try to get for my inventory whenever possible. Their jewelry that I have had over the years are cast and usually very nicely defined and finished. And even though I wouldn't say that I associate them with big, in-your-face pieces, I was still pleasantly surprised to find this delicately detailed necklace, each of its links adorned with a cobalt blue art glass cabochon...
