This is a fabulous C1940 Horacio de la Parra Huge Mexico Sterling Silver Bracelet with Green Agate Stones. It is signed Mexico/Sterling/Parra and dates before the use of eagle marks. The bracelet is heavy weighing 69.4 grams. There are eight beautifully designed raised work panel links each having a bezel set matching green agate stone. The width of the bracelet alone is 1 1/2" A safety chain ties the bracelet together but does not have a spring ring so it is attached to the bracelet at each end. The bracelet was stored carefully and is not in need of any cleaning (nor has it been cleaned). The patina is just exquisite. Each link is slightly arched allowing the bracelet to fit nice and roundly around the wrist.The bracelet closes with a v-spring and box clasp where the finger release becomes part of the bracelet design. The bracelet measures 7" around. The hand work is absolutely wonderful. A few words about the maker Horacio de la Parra: He was the owner of Plateria Azteca, and one of the founders of the legendary Conquistador S.A. the large silver manufacturer and retailer which at one time produced pieces designed by Hector Aguilar and William Spratling.
