It took a great deal of skill, imagination and patience to create this bracelet. It's an old Mexican link bracelet in 925 sterling silver, obviously crafted by a masterful silversmith.
The seven link bracelet features seven stylized animal figures overlaid on oxidized backgrounds. The animals are mostly recognizable...fish, dragon, crab, donkey, dog, etc....but they all have an Art Deco / Modernist aesthetic that makes each uniquely 'artistic'.
The bracelet measures 7 inches long by 1 inch wide. The inside is marked MEXICO - SILVER - 925. It weighs 35.7 grams.
The bracelet has a secure slide-in box clasp that closes with a snap. It's been acid tested for sterling. We don't polish old silver to retain the beautiful aged patina. This bracelet is in excellent vintage condition. It's truly a wearable work of art. Circa 1940s/50s.
