This is a marvelous early Mexican Sterling silver bracelet that features exquisite craftsmanship and design. The bracelet is ovoid shaped and consists of a front and back panel joined by a side hinge and closing with a detachable pin in a cylindrical closure. The curving silver frame of the bracelet is substantial and heavy; within the frame are elaborate silver scrolls with the dynamically carved Onyx mask at the center. Two domed serpentine cabochons flank the mask and all stones are bezel set with a rope work detail surrounding the bezel. The back panel has the same bezel set serpentine cabochons, rope work surround, and scrolled silver work. Beautiful skilled workmanship! The interior of the bracelet is only signed Mexico Silver, no Eagle Mark, and this signature, coupled with its ornate style and the period correct cylindrical closure, leads me to believe this bracelet was created in the 1930s – early 1940s. This important piece measures 1 5/8 inches wide at the front, tapering to three quarters of an inch at the rear. The interior side to side measurement is 2 7/8 inches and it measures 2 ¼ inches front to back. This stunner weighs a hefty 50.1g. The condition is excellent. These early Mexican pieces with their distinctive design and artistry are becoming so hard to find. Here’s a real treasure! $249.00
