Gerardo Lopez 925 Sterling 1950's Taxco Domed Bracelet
Heavy but comfortable bracelet by one of the master Taxco craftsmen. Lopez is considered one of the better silver artists working in the 1950's and the lines and proportions of this piece certainly support that conclusion. The bracelet is stamped with an eagle mark and 26. Below that is the atelier mark of Lopez stating Sterling 925, Lopez Taxco, Hecho en Mexico. Hougart (2006) places this stamp post 1955 with an unknown terminal date. The condition of the bracelet is very good with one small dent in one of the last small domes (see images).
Dimensions: the bracelet is 6 inches long with a 7/8" gap. The maximum width is 1 1/4 inches tapering to about 7/8 inches at the ends. The bracelet weighs 49.5 grams
