I am so pleased to be able to offer you this beautiful Modernist 970 silver and blue spinel bracelet by the best of the best, Antonio Pineda of Taxco, Mexico, circa 1955. This bracelet features deep, oval links in 970 silver each set with a gorgeous, faceted ice-blue topaz gemstone. It's a stunning example of this master's work and closes with a slide in clasp. A beauty!The collecting world was saddened to learn in December of 2009 that Sr. Pineda passed away at 90 years of age in Taxco. There was a lengthy obituary in the Los Angeles Times of December 20, 2009, where they go on to state, in part,....."Antonio Pineda, the internationally renowned Mexican modernist silversmith who was praised for his bold, striking jewelry designs and ingenious use of gemstones, has died. A Taxco native, Pineda was among the most prominent of the many silversmiths to emerge from the mountain mining town beginning in the 1930s.""He was the subject of a 2008-09 exhibition at UCLA's Fowler Museum, "Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda," which traced the evolution of his work through the 1970s. 'He was certainly one of the major modernist silversmiths in the 1950s, '60s and certainly into the '70s,' said Betsy Quick, the Fowler's director of education and the show's in-house curator. 'There was a small cadre of extremely well-known, well-respected and brilliant silversmiths living in Taxco, Mexico, and the rest of those smiths have, at this point, passed away,' Quick said. 'Antonio really was the last of the great silversmiths of this period.' ""At age 11, he had a brief apprenticeship in the Taxco silver jewelry workshop of U.S. designer and entrepreneur William Spratling, who had moved to the area in the late 1920s. Pineda later apprenticed with Mexico City painter and silversmith Valentin Vidauretta and returned to Taxco in 1936. He was involved in mining and worked in sales and management at Spratling's workshop before opening his own silver jewelry workshop in 1939. At his peak, Pineda employed nearly 100 other silversmiths. A major turning point in his career came in 1944 when his work was included in an exhibition at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. Pineda's work grew to include sculpture, and he began exhibiting internationally, including in Chicago, Paris, London, Rome, Amsterdam and Mexico City."Hallmark: Antonio (in a crown) J Veles Taxco Mexico 970 Eagle(3) Size: Wearable Length: 6 3/4+"; Width: 13/16"; Grams: 62Condition: Excellent vintage - note that the slide in clasp must be depressed (pushed down) to both slide INTO the clasp and OUT of the clasp
