One of the rarest, in my experience, bracelets by Margot de Taxco out of her, influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, hand-hammered and oxidized line of jewelry, the Quetzalcoatl mirrored on this clamper's opposing wings is fierce and awe-inspiring. Monumental in its presence, the bracelet is an ode to Mexico's rich cultural history and definitely not a piece for the ... faint-of-heart. I am thrilled I was lucky enough to find it and am more than proud to be presenting it here. The bracelet has an inner circumference of 7" and its width varies between 2 1/4" and 1 1/8". It weighs a very generous 106.9 grams and is fully hallmarked with Margot's signature as well as Eagle 16 assay mark and des. no 5598. It dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition exhibiting all the qualities that Margot jewelry is loved and sought after for, with great patina, its oxidation in very good shape and a tight hinge; no damage other than the bracelet's being ever so slightly out of round yet truly imperceptibly so nor any repairs noted.
