Exceptional quality and an unusual design that brings to mind Hector Aguilar characterize this Mexican Deco sterling silver bracelet. Signed by a listed yet still unidentified maestro, its heart-shaped links are made of very thick silver sheet with cut-outs of hand-chased tulips , their floral heads leaning inwards to gently touch the skin. A bracelet that bespeaks the craftsmanship of its maker and the pride the early Taxco maestros took in their work it has a 7" inner circumference (clasped) and is 1 1/8" wide. It weighs a very generous 81.7 grams and is signed with maker's initials "A.L." as well as "STERLING" and "TAXCO 925". The bracelet dates in the 1940s and is in
excellent vintage condition, beautiful in its simple yet strong design, very generous in weight, with warmly glowing patina and no damage or repairs noted.
