Vtg Sterling Silver Taxco Mexican Modernist Wide Inlay Malachite Copper Bracelet:
OXFORD JEWEL This sale is for a striking and colorful, sterling silver modernist inlay bracelet, that was made in Mexico during the 1950's - 60's.
This piece is marked "Hecho en Mexico", Taxco, and a maker mark of "28". The bracelet has an inside circumference of 7", it is just shy of 1 1/4" wide, and the piece weighs a substantial 85.9 grams. The bracelet opens smoothly and closes securely with its original hidden push clasp - it still has safety chain loops but not the original chain. The bracelet has solid links that are slightly curved in shape so that the piece wraps nicely around your wrist when worn despite its width. This piece is unique for its modern design that has a diamond pattern with inlay of copper or maybe brass and stones that look like a rough cut of malachite - but I thinks its most likely an entirely different stone. The inlay is completely flush and tight, well made, and very smooth to the touch. There are some fine hairline cracks to the stones but they are smooth to the touch and the stones seem very secure in their setting. There are a couple of very small chips to the inlay, maybe 1mm in diameter, but they are noticeable only upon very close inspection, the inlay is 98% intact. There are no signs of solder or repair to the silver and the piece has a nice patina that will need a polish now and then. Overall this is a striking and colorful, sterling silver modernist inlay bracelet, that was made in Mexico during the 1950's - 60's that is in Excellent condition.
