Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver & Abalone Link Bracelet, Reveriano Castillo, Early Mexico, Pre-Eagle, 1930's, Chunky, Superb! #c302
I am happy to present this beautiful vintage sterling silver and abalone link bracelet by Taxco silversmith Reveriano Castillo! 

Reveriano Castillo was an apprentice to William Spratling in 1934 and began working at the famous silversmith Hector Aguilar's Taller Border in 1939. He and his wife Maria eventually opened their own store, Reveri, in 1952 which continued in business until the 1990's. He is recognized as an extremely talented, master silversmith.

This Reveriano Castillo link bracelet is an early, pre-eagle piece from the 1930's. It consists of five rectangular links with marvelous multi-color abalone cabochons. The links are decorated with rope details around the sides of the cabochons and also with rope and silver bead details on each end. The abalone cabochons in the bracelet exhibit a wide variety of colors and patterns that are simply captivating! Some of them are reminiscent of marvelous colorful stained glass windows! The bracelet closes with a push-in box clasp. It's a superb handmade piece!

The bracelet measures about 6 3/4 inches long, 11mm wide and weighs 12.4 grams. It is marked "Sterling Taxco 925" in a circle around the letters "RC" for Reveriano Castillo on the back of the clasp. 

This bracelet is simply stunning! The silver is the perfect complement to the colorful abalone stones, and it would pair nicely with any other silver jewelry. It's a fantastic signed, handcrafted piece to add to a vintage Mexican silver jewelry collection and would make a fine gift. The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition and ready to wear or to be gifted!
