Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver Modernist Cuff Bracelet, Los Ballesteros, Mexico, Abstract, Open, Asymmetrical, Bangle, Nice! #c101
Here's a fabulous vintage modernist cuff bracelet from Los Ballesteros of Taxco, Mexico!

The Los Ballesteros taller (workshop) was established in Iguala, Mexico in the late 1930's by Jalil Majul Ballesteros. The business moved to Taxco in the early 1940's and has since grown into a large jewelry manufacturing and retail business. Their items were created by numerous talented silversmiths and they continue to produce fine silver jewelry today.

This wonderful Los Ballesteros cuff bracelet is a vintage 1980's piece. It is comprised of fine sterling silver with a smooth finish. It has an asymmetrical, modernist design that is simply captivating! The design is abstract and open and looks absolutely wonderful worn on the arm.

The cuff has an inside measurement of approximately 2 5/8 inches and has a 1 1/8 inch opening in the back. The bandwidth of the cuff is about 5/8 inch at its widest point in the front. The cuff weighs a substantial 18.5 grams. It is well marked on the inside of the cuff, although faintly, with the Los Ballesteros stylized "B" surrounded by the words "Talleres de Los Ballesteros Taxco GRO" in a circle. Also, inside the cuff, are the marks "Hecho en Mexico", the Taxco registration number "MM-34, and a "925" hallmark.

I love the open, modern design of this piece! It is sleek and clean-lined with a fabulous abstract appearance that is quite beautiful. If you love abstract modernist jewelry, this the perfect piece for you! The cuff is in excellent vintage condition with no damage. Combine this marvelous cuff bracelet with your other Mexican silver jewelry and you'll create a wonderful and unique look!
