1950s Rebajes Geometric Copper Cuff

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A rare, hand-assembled copper cuff by modernist craftsman Francisco Rebajes (1907-1990). The avant-garde, abstract geometric design of this bracelet suggests the "punk" and unconventional forms of later designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Alexander McQueen. Examples of Rebajes' work are in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York.

Cuff fits a small wrist well, some size flexibility
