 SOLD - Thank you! 
One of the most interesting pieces by Los Castillo I have ever encountered - and in my experience a rarely surfacing cuff at that - I am thrilled to be presenting this bracelet here. Fusing copper and sterling silver, the cuff is a double-wide version of the taller's popular des. no 909. Yet in our case, the copper part makes for the repoussage-d face and is then seamlessly applied on the sterling background. Could this be an experimental piece or a custom-made version of the design? Either way, it is absolutely gorgeous and the patina to die for. It has an inner circumference of 6 3/4" (including the 1 1/8" gap; in my experience non-adjustable due to the danger of damaging the repousse) and its width reaches 1 5/8". It weighs 51.1 grams and is signed with the taller's name and "TAXCO" alongside des. no 909. There is an additional mark which I cannot read because it's badly stamped - could it be a line name? There is no hallmark for silver content but the cuff tests positive for sterling and is guaranteed as such. A pre-1948 gorgeous piece in excellent vintage condition, rare and just fab!
