Vintage Felipe Martinez Taxco inlaid turquoise sterling silver bracelet, Taxco, Mexico, c1950. This is a rare bracelet by Martinez, the only one we have seen in this design. Jewelry by Martinez is prized by collectors. His work is among the finest jewelry ever designed and made in Taxco, during its most important period of artisanal silver making. Signed with the "F. Martinez 925" Taxco mark, which pre-dates the studio mark "Plata Y Piedra" which he began using in 1950. This piece has substantial weight, and the individual sections are technically perfect; the design beautifully combines color, movement and line, a testament to Martinez's artistry. Felipe Martinez designs were inspired by pre-Columbian pieces but are modern and relevant today. See MEXICAN SILVER 20th Century HANDWROUGHT JEWELRY and METAL WORK by Penny Chittim Morrill and Carole A. Berk. Published by Schiffer 1994 pages pages 188 and 246. This bracelet measures 7.75 inches long by 1 inch wide by 3/16th inches thick and is in excellent condition with some very minor wear. Will easily fit a small to average size wrist of about 6 inches in circumference.
