A stunning, very big and weighty vintage Mexican silver cuff by Margot Van Voorhies Carr, or Margot de Taxco. 1940s or 1950s. Marked MARGOT DE TAXCO, STERLING MADE IN MEXICO, with eagle #16, and design number 5291. With her signature swan motif in a very stylized form. Very substantial at 75 grams/2.6 ounces. A fabulous piece from the estate of a serious Baltimore collector.
Great size -- 2 inches wide by 7 inches inside circumference, including the gap, which is 1 inch. Overall excellent condition. On the sides, some of the smallest silver beads are very slightly flattened on top -- three on one side and seven on the other. This is visible in photos but is not visible in person at a short distance, and not at all noticeable when the bracelet is worn. Photos enlarged to show detail.
