Vintage Mexico Sterling Silver Mayan Sun God Hinged Panel Link Bracelet - Black Niello - Geometric - 7 1/2 Inches #d297

Regular price $88.00
This wonderful Mexican bracelet is comprised of fine sterling silver. With its style, finish and markings, I believe it is a pre-Eagle mark, circa early 1940s piece. The bracelet features four curved, hinged, rectangular links that form a bangle when worn on the arm. All of the links are engraved with Mayan sun god symbols in the center with Greek key or meander type symbols on each side. The panels are finished in a black niello-like finish that is very similar to that seen on Siam sterling pieces. The black finish on the panels really sets off the engraved silver sun god and geometric symbols beautifully. The bracelet is finished in a smooth silver on the back and it closes with a push-in box clasp. It's a gorgeous statement piece!

The bracelet measures about 7 1/2 inches long when closed, 19mm wide and weighs 35.5 grams. It is marked "Sterling 0925 Mexico" on the back of the box portion of the clasp.

This bracelet is simply stunning! The contrast of the bright silver against the black finish is truly beautiful. It would pair nicely with any other silver jewelry and would make a fine addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection. The bracelet is in very good vintage condition with normal surface scratches from its previous 80 years of use and age patina to the silver which is mainly seen on the back. You can view a close up of the condition of the black surfaces of the panels in photo #6. It's a fantastic old Mexican silver find!!
