ANTONIO PINEDA Vintage Obsidian Spine Bracelet

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Considered one of the finest Mexican silver craftsmen from the twentieth century, Antonio Pineda began his art at a young age. He studied painting and sculpture as a youth and at age 14 he was apprenticed to Taller de Las Delicias of William Spratling to learn the silversmith craft. Antonio founded his own workshop in 1941 and his talent flourished.

This vintage sterling and obsidian bracelet is a fabulous Antonio Pineda piece from the 1950's! Made of sterling silver, it features 16 half moon obsidian stones which come together to form 8 v-shaped links. The obsidian stones are encased in sterling silver and the links are connected by long bar hinges. The bracelet looks striking when in motion, creating a spine appearance. The clasp is hidden within one of the links and there is a safety chain for added security. On the back of the clasp are several markings: "HECHO EN MEXICO", "TP17", "970", and the Antonio Pineda crown hallmark. A beautiful piece, this bracelet would fit nicely on an average sized wrist. It would make a perfect addition to any collection!

Measurement: The bracelet measures approximately 7 1/2" long. Each onyx link measures 1 5/8" wide, 1 1/2" tall and has a depth of a little less than 3/4".
