For sale here is a RARE vintage 1960s 70s handmade sterling silver and turquoise Mexican modernist bolo tie designed by Erika Hult de Corral in Mexico. A striking modernist design by this acclaimed artist! I've only seen one other bolo tie by the artist, and believe she didn't design many of them. Corral studied at the Parsons School of Design in Paris before coming to Taxco where she designed for both Enrique Ledesma and Sigi Pineda before she opened her own shop in 1966. The sterling and turquoise slide measures 1-1/2" by 1-3/4", the sterling terminals measure 1-1/2" long by 5/8" wide, and the original braided black leather cord measures 40" and can be slipped over the head then tightened to the desired length. Total weight for the bolo is 47.8 grams which includes the leather section. According to Bille Hougart, her "pieces are usually marked with a design or inventory number". This bolo tie does not have a design number, and thus it's likely a one of a kind! Marked at back of the slide with her maker mark, "Ric", also "Tax Mex" for Taxco, Mexico, "925" for sterling silver, and post-1980 registry mark "TR-26". Corral was a designer, not a silversmith, and the registry mark is for the silversmith that executed her design for her. The terminals are unmarked which isn't unusual, and have tested as sterling silver quality. 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.
