Early 1940's sterling silver 925 bracelet with carved onyx faces. Very Pre Columbian looking There are a lot of face bracelets around this one is a rare piece, I have had it in my collection over 30 years, it belonged to my friends grandmother and was purchased back in the 40's from Mexico.
The detailing is authentic and nice and large in size.
The weight is 96 grams , each panel 5 in all held together with 5 silver rings, hence looking like a whip stitch.
Each Aztec carved green onyx face is different.
You can clearly see that each face is hand carved with a silver bead that has been anchored in the back of bracelet.
There is a rod clasp, long rod that securely slips into the barrel and holds securely.
Marked silver Mexico on backside.
All this needs is a bit of silver polish to bring it back to a new lustre, I prefer to leave it alone showing just how old it is. Very Pre Columbian Looking Condition is excellent.
7 3/4 inches long 1 3/4 inches wide.
