925 Silver, jewelry from Taxco, Mexico.
Please read this description carefully. It will contain the information associating this magnificent piece of jewelry with Taxco's Margot de Taxco. It is made from the original Margot's molds, by a gentleman, senor Melesio Rodriguez Villalba, who worked with Margot Van Voorhies Carr for 24 years, and now, at his 80 years of age, he continues making these beautiful pieces. He was responsible for the execution of many of Margot's designs. His artist's registry number of "MR." "TR-114" is widely recognized as one that uses Margot's original molds. This is such a piece!!!
Please feel free to contact me for further information on sr. Villalba, and his place in the overall picture of vintage Taxco jewelry.
This bracelet is sterling silver. It is a classic design, by Margot de Taxco, first introduced in the late 1950's. Gorgeous piece of jewelry, inspired primarily by Aztec art, pre-Columbian image that shows an ancient and nice motif. Beautifully finished with an incredible appearance. This is a wonderful, solid, substantial in weight bracelet with a total weight of 66.5 grams, (2.1 ounces).
I would also like to point out that the silver bracelet has Melesios Villarreal mark on it. This is Sr. Melesio's grandson, who has been working under his wing, learning this ancient Mexican tradition and keeping it alive.
The classic Mexican silver bracelet is one and five eighth inches wide, at its widest point and it has an inside circumference of six and a half inches.Also, if you need a larger inside circumference, please let us know.
