Fine, .970 silver and black onyx crescents surround the wrist in this book-piece Antonio Pineda Mexican modernist bracelet. One of the renowned maestro's most popular creations, I have to admit that I love the bracelet much more than the cascading necklace of the same design. There is something fierce and assertive about the crescent-shaped links that remind me of talons. Yet there is also a tenderness in the way they wrap themselves around the wrist - just like an eagle mother protecting her nestlings. Perfect for the medium to smaller wrist and definitely a statement-making bracelet it is 6" long (wearable) by 1 1/4" wide and weighs 94.2 grams. Fully and appropriately signed with Antonio's crown as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO SILVER", "970", Eagle 17 assay mark and des. no ZZ648 it dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition with fantastic patina, impressive presence yet easy to wear, with no damage and no repairs noted.
