This pre-1948, sterling, repoussé clamper is by the Taxco artisan, Alfredo Villasana. Its swirling design reminds me of ocean waves.
I am a huge fan of Villasana's work and have featured many pieces in my shops.
This piece is in excellent condition, no dings or dents and very little surface wear. The patina is perfect and the hinge is tight and rust free.
It's very wide in the front, so it is best worn on a long forearm.
Width: 3.75" front, tapers to 1.25" back.
Inside measurement: 6.5".
Weight: 79 grams.
Hallmark: AV conjoined, Taxco, Hecho en Mexico, Sterling, 925. No eagle assay.
