This is a heavy, handmade Mexican solid sterling silver bracelet by Taxco silversmith Damaso Gallegos (1895 to 1976).

Gallegos opened his own taller, La Amatista, after working with Hector Aguilar at Taller Borda. Some of his work was sold at Rancho Alegre.

As is obvious by this bracelet, Gallegos was a masterful craftsman who could lay out the story of Mexican culture in five hand-etched panels. Each vignette is raised up from the oxidized darkened background with a self-frame of silver.

The vista of mountains, Aztec sun calendar, the eagle, an adobe, and the sleeping Mexican under the cactus...all folksy cultural images.

Bracelet measures 6 3/4 inches long but is best worn on a wrist that's 6 to 6 1/2 inches around. It's 1 inch wide. It weighs 59 grams. Secure slide-in box clasp.

Back is stamped with the DG hallmark of Gallegos - TAXCO - STERLING.

Light minor age-related wear - nothing notable. Overall in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1950s. High quality artist.
