Made at Casa Maya in Mexico City, this handwrought mixed metals cuff bracelet features a fish motif. It's inlaid with iridescent abalone shell.
The fish seem to go in both directions. There's no up or down...these fish swim every-which-way. During the 1950s/60s, several Mexican artisans experimented with exotic fish motifs and this one is certainly creative with fishtails on each side.
The inside of the bracelet is marked CASA MAYA though a few of the letters are vague. The work that came out of Maya Mexico City is very distinctive and recognizable. These Mexican artisans made these folk art bracelets as popular tourist souvenirs.
Bracelet measures 6 inches end to end metal. The opening is 1 1/2 inches. The cuff is 1 5/8 inches wide. Would best fit a wrist in the 7 to 7 1/4 inch range.
Great original aged patina. Excellent vintage condition.
