For sale here is a RARE vintage 1960s 70s handmade mixed metals brass sterling silver and lapis lazuli modernist belt buckle designed by Erika Hult de Corral in Mexico. Corral studied at the Parsons School of Design in Paris before coming to Taxco where she designed for both Enrique Ledesma and Sigi Pineda. She opened her own shop in 1966. This buckle is an early design for her own shop, and as it does not have a design number I believe it to be a one of a kind custom-made piece. According to Bille Hougart, her "pieces are usually marked with a design or inventory number". A complex design in mixed metals brass and sterling silver and with precious lapis lazuli inlay, this buckle makes a statement! Measures 2-3/8" by 1-3/8" by just under 1/2" thick, and weighs a super hefty 65.4 grams total. Marked at back, "Ric Mexico Laton". Corral was a designer, not a silversmith, and the last mark "Laton" is for the silversmith that executed her design. Excellent vintage condition with just fine light wear and some spots of tarnish to the metal 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.
