Rendered in the 1970s, this is a wonderful vintage sterling silver bracelet from Taxco, Mexico. The large cuff has a wonderful swirled, traditional Mexican design, which creates wonderful movement and really catches your eye!
Taxco silver is highly coveted and collectible, with a high quality of craftsmanship in each piece. Taxco is a tiny town between Acapulco and Mexico City with a long mining history. In the late 1920s, a highway finally extended to Taxco, which enabled William Spratling, a gentleman from the US, to find the town and discover the potential in the artisan community. He invited great metalsmiths to join him in apprenticing young artists, and the world took notice of the divine craftsmanship in the jewelry produced.
The cuff is in very good vintage condition with typical surface wear on the silver. The handmade cuff is stamped on the inside with “Sterling Taxco Mexico.” There are typical signs of wear with a vintage piece, fine lines, and marks. The hinge is still functional and tight, clamps nicely around the wrist. The cuff is hollow, and during manufacturing, a piece of silver became trapped in the cuff, which rattles slightly.
The cuff is 7″ long and 3-1/2″ wide.
