Graziella Laffi Peruvian Modernist Sterling Silver Green Malachite Cuff Bracelet

$4,500

About

Important Aztec Peruvian modern sterling silver and malachite linked cuff bracelet by Graziella Laffi circa 1965. Bracelet consists of four panels of etched sterling silver, each one patterned differently from the next and holding a 1" square piece of variegated green malachite. It measures a massive 3 3/4" wide by 7 3/8" long. Signed G.Laffi, Peru. 10.9 ounces. Laffi was born in Florence, Italy and studied drawing, painting, and architecture before turning her attention to silversmithing. In 1947 she immigrated with her parents to Peru where Graziella's father, Gino, also a metalsmith, opened a small workshop named Casa Laffi. It was at his workshop that she developed her remarkable skills as a silversmith, which are quite apparent in this exquisite bracelet. Laffi has been referred to as the "Spratling of Peru". There is an installation of her work on view at LACMA in the Latin American galleries, Art of the Americas Building.
