Mixed Metals Bracelet: Circa 1950   $295   

Seven link bracelet combining layers of sterling silver; copper and brass. This design was begun by Los Castillo who termed the technique "metales casados" translating to married metals. Others followed in their footsteps. This bracelet is signed Metales then a conjoined JF Icuerda and Taxco. It is 3/8" tall and approximately 7 1/2" long (safety chain makes it difficult to be precise). Substantial weight and excellent condition.
