This is an absolutely stunning design of Antonio Pineda's with concave sections of. The inside measurement of the closed bracelet is 7 inches. Taking a measurement of a bracelet with a safety chain is difficult. The width of the bracelet is 3/4 inches. The weight of this piece is 104.2 grams or 3.35 troy ounces.
This appears to be a circa 1953 piece, as there is an Eagle 17 hallmark. The other hallmarks are: "970, Crown with Antonio Taxco, Hecho en Mexico, Silver and ZZ 571". It was difficult attempting to get photos of the hallmarks as they are obscured by the safety chain's connection. The only way of even seeing the 970 and Eagle 17 hallmarks were with a powerful loupe.According to "Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda" by Gobi Stromberg this bracelet is shown on Page 127. It states that the bracelet has concave panels. I have counted these panels and there are 12 of them, they measure 3/4" tall x 3/8" deep x 9/16" long and they angle out of 11/16".
All of my gemstones are natural, earth mined stones, unless otherwise stated. All of the metals are as hallmarked or tested.
All measurements are taken with an Electronic Digital Caliper, and are therefore approximate. >< I would consider it an honor if you would place. And have fun and check out my other items.
