Most commonly found with turquoise cabs this type of Mexican Deco silver hinged bracelets are among the most sought after designs. Made up of rows and rows of repousse semi-spheres and overlaid with additional rows of bezel-set stone or glass cabochons, they are a pleasure to wear and they have a powerful visual impact. The medium-width example I am presenting here is rather more difficult to come upon because the cabs are made of black glass. When one thinks about it, what color combination is more Deco than silver and black? The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7" (clasped) and it is 1 1/8" wide. It weighs 54.8 grams and is simply marked "MEXICO SILVER" which dates it in the pre-1948 period. It is in excellent vintage condition - I don't even see any of the light dings that are usually found in the beads along the perimeter - with nice patina, all the black cabs securely in place, with no damage or any repairs noted.
