For sale here is a HUGE vintage 1960s handmade geometric modernist design 900 silver and green chalcedony cuff bracelet by internationally acclaimed artist Oswaldo Guayasamin (1919-1999) of Ecuador. Sometimes referred to as "the Picasso of the Andes", Guayasamin is an internationally recognized artist and sculptor of the highest caliber, and his jewelry is wearable sculpture! His artwork is held in major museums around the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. This cuff has a refined geometric design with textured surfaces contrasting with polished edges, and two large bezel-set green chalcedony cabochons at the terminals. Measures 1-3/4" wide at terminals tapering to 1-1/8" wide at back, measures 6-1/4" inside circumference plus 3/4" gap at top so fits presently up to 7" wrist but easily sized up or down a bit by a professional, and weighs 35.3 grams total. Marked as shown, "Guayasamin 900" with the hand-engraved mark, not stamped. This is his earliest mark for his pieces made in the early 1960s. Later in the 1960s, they went to stamped marks, and the pieces marked "Taller Guayasamin" were made from the 1980s to the present. (See my article about the artist in the archive section of Modern Silver magazine online from 2012 - though Modern Silver is no longer online directly, you can still read the article using the Wayback machine, an internet archive - see information on Wikipedia.) Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and tarnish as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
