Dramatic 1930's Vtg Taxco Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Repousse Bracelet


DRAMATIC 1930'S VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER REPOUSSE BRACELET


Description

This is a MAGNIFICENT vintage sterling silver bracelet that was hand wrought in Taxco, Mexico, circa 1930's to mid 1940's, by a well documented silver artist who signed their pieces "APA". This exceptional bracelet is masterfully crafted in a feminine, sculptural motif ~ it is exquisite! The bracelet consists of 1-1/2" wide silver repousse links that have double layered designs of ridged cornucopias with bold silver demi spheres. Repoussage is a metal working 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 connected with soldered silver jump rings. The silver has acquired a beautiful soft patina that reflects the shadows created by the designs. The clasp is a simple hook closure that is seen on much of the early Mexican silver jewelry. This magnificent bracelet is extremely well made in an extraordinary design that is sure to be noticed and admired ~ it would be a grand asset to any vintage Taxco silver jewelry collection!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 7", width is 1-1/2", and weight is 43.8 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "HECHO EN MEXICO, APA, 925, STERLING, TAXCO, 2 (design number)". Artist "APA" and this hallmark are shown on page 226 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2006 edition).

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.
