This vintage, sterling silver bracelet is by master silversmith, Hector Aguilar. This set (necklace, bracelet and earrings) is shown on pages 30 of Penny C. Morrill's "Silver Masters of Mexico - Hector Aguilar and the Taller Borda." He called this particular design "Lyre." He is the one who invented the three ball swivel hinge design between the links. Hector Aguilar is among the most famous and respected of all the masters of silver jewelry based in Taxco, Mexico during the 1930's - 1950's decades. He started with William Spratling, then opened his own shop in 1939, making this bracelet one of his earlier pieces.

Measurements: This bracelet is 7 inches long by 1/2 inch wide, with a snap in box clasp. It is 1.5 ounces, 43 grams.

Condition: The bracelet is in very good vintage condition with the patina one expects of an 70 year old piece! There are no issues of note. Please review all photographs carefully, as they are an important part of the description.

Marks: The mark stamped into the bracelet is "MADE IN MEXICO," the Aguilar's "HA" logo, and "STER LING" (on two lines). According to "The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks" (page 14) by Bille Hougart, the hallmark on this bracelet dates it to the 1940 - 45 time period. Aguilar had a partnership with Coro during the 1940's until 1950, and you may also find some of those (much less expensive) pieces in my shop.
