From 1943 to 1950 the great Mexican jewelry designer Hector Aguilar went into partnership with Coro, the American costume jewelry company, to manufacture a line of silver jewelry. Aguilar (1905-1986) is one of the masters of mid-20th century Mexican jewelry. He began his jewelry career as manager for William Spratling’s workshop from 1937-1939. In 1939 he established his own workshop, the Taller Borda, in an 18th century building on the zocalo in Taxco, which remained open until 1962. The jewelry produced for Coro was machine-made, and hand finished, with high quality designs.
This domed bracelet is a wonderful example of the work produced by this collaboration. It features seven domes linked by narrow rectangular segments. An example of this bracelet can be seen on page 135 of Penny Morrill’s book “Silver Masters of Mexico, Hector Aguilar and the Taller Borda".
SIZE: 7-1/4" long. Each dome is 7/8" in diameter.
MARKS: "Coro"; "Made in Mexico"; "Silver"
CONDITION: very good vintage condition with minor signs of wear including small scuffs and a few small dimples, consistent with age and use.
