Comprised of 4 striking rectangular enameled links, this vintage bracelet is bold and beautiful in its depiction of the Aztec reverence for the sun.
Each link, measuring 28.5mm x 26.5mm, is created with great attention to detail, color, dimension and beauty. Each panel depicts an Aztec figure in worship, rooted in a significant reverence for the Sun. In the top left corner, the sun is a gold ball from which 8 golden rays emanate. The kneeling figure, accented in green and black enamel detail, is making an offering to the sun and is raised from the panel in fine dimension.
The upper right hand of the panel is finished in a white enamel design. The border immediately around the enameled panels is textured in a layered chevron design and at the top and bottom of each panel, a two step linear border completes the presentation.
Four figural links connect the four panels. These figures, wearing ceremonial attire, measure 19mm x 7mm. The bracelet measures 7 3/8” in length x 1 1/8” and has a safety chain. The tongue of the clasp is marked “18k.” The bracelet weighs 86.5 grams.
In the lower left hand corner of one of the panels, there is minor loss to the enamel.
