1930's Vtg Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Repousse Agate Bracelet 2


1930'S VTG MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER REPOUSSE AGATE BRACELET 2" WIDE


Description

This is aSTUPENDOUSvintage sterling silver repousse bracelet that was hand wrought in Mexico, circa 1930's to mid 1940's, and has early marks of "SILVER, MEXICO". This bracelet is at least sterling silver 925 but is most likely a higher grade of silver since much of the early Mexican jewelry was made of 940 to 980 silver because it was easier to work with and didn't tarnish as quickly as sterling. This bracelet is masterfully crafted in a bold and beautiful design that has a lovely art nouveau look. It consists of 2" wide, sculptural sterling silver repousse rectangular links that are adorned in the centers with gorgeous green agate cabochons (1" long and 1" wide and 3/8" thick) thatare bezel setand are surrounded with exquisitely detailed floral and foliate designs.Repoussage is a technique where malleable metal (such as sterling silver) is shaped or ornamented by hammering from the back or underside. This technique is extremely time consuming and can take an artist an entire day or several days to complete just one piece. The links are pin hinged together which gives the bracelet beautiful, uninterrupted design flow. The clasp is a tongue and box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp 'click'. The silver has acquired a beautiful warm patina that reflects the shadows created by the designs. This spectacular bracelet isbreathtaking ~ it sweeps across the wrist with the regal bearing of an ancient Aztec artifact ~ sure to be noticed AND admired ~ it would be a grand asset to any vintageMexican silver jewelry collection!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 7-1/2", width is 2", and weight is81.8 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ no chips, cracks or damage to agate cabochons only natural internal banding and color variances inherent to agate stones ~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: Simple, early marks of "SILVER, MEXICO". This bracelet is at least sterling silver 925 but is most likely a higher grade of silver since much of the early Mexican jewelry was made of 940 to 980 silver because it was easier to work with and didn't tarnish as quickly as sterling.BILLE HOUGART'S NEW THIRD EDITION OF THE LITTLE BOOK OF MEXICAN SILVER TRADE AND HALLMARKS IS NOW AVAILABLE HEREON FROM CICATRIX! OR AT YOUR FAVORITE ONLINE OR BRICKS & MORTAR BOOK STORE!

PLEASE NOTE: For Mexican jewelry artists and designers, silver is their canvas. In their hands, craft meets creativity and silver becomes wearable art. The various techniques are like a painter’s brushstrokes ~ they make each piece unique and a timeless object of beauty. Mexican vintage silver jewelry is handwrought, and therefore, not perfect ~ each piece will have variances that indicate that the piece is hand made. Vintage pieces will show various signs of wear since they have been pre-loved ~ items are described to the best of my ability and any damage will be noted.

Please email me with any questions and check out my other sales. I try to list new treasures several times per week ~ all of my sales begin and end in five minute intervals, beginning at 9PM ET. Thanks for your interest!
