Vintage mid-century Modern Mexican silver and obsidian LEDESMA bracelet

A fabulous Enrique Ledesma 1950s sterling silver and obsidian bracelet. This piece is a prime example of the bold jewelry designs that flourished in Mexico in the mid-20th century. The bracelet weights over 100 grams and each link hinges like a joint with the next, giving it a movement that is part serpentine/part mechanical gear on the wrist. Each link is inlaid with obsidian, a material favored by Ledesma. Tab and safety clasp. A piece of wearable art. Marked for the artist, the original retail location (Plateria Cortes, Taxco), silver, and Mexican hallmarks. Outstanding condition.

Era: 1950s
Markings: Hallmark for Enrique Ledesma, Plateria Cortes (a retail shop in Taxco that Ledesma designed for), Hecho en Mexico, and an Eagle 3.
