Early LOS CASTILLO MEXICAN 980 Silver CHOLULA CUFF BRACELET TAXCO Vintage

waves of fine silver...



An early Los Castillo cuff 
as evidence not only by its low design number 
but also by the raised, straight line letter signature it bears, 
this piece reminds me a lot of Spratling's "Cholula" bracelet.

 Crafted out of thick gauge 980 silver, 
its undulating waves are deeply chased and oxidized 
and the patina the cuff has acquired over time glistens warmly.

 This is a piece perfect for smaller to medium wrists -
at last something that will fit us too! -
and I would be very careful tyring to adjust it, if at all, due to the thickness of the metal...



Prolific yet never compromising on quality,

the Los Castillo taller ranks among 

my absolute Taxco favorites -

SIZE/WEIGHT:  inner circumference of 6  3/4" (including the 1  1/16" gap); width goes up to 5/8"; 40.5 grams

HALLMARKS/DATE: taller's name in straight line capital letters as well as des. no 242 and "980" albeit not very well stamped; 1940s

CONDITION: excellent vintage with strong presence and good weight

About Shipping:


Kindly note that Free Shipping offers are valid for domestic sales only!


USA Buyers: Due to the recent changes in shipping and insurance options by Ebay, I have revised my shipping policy as follows: I will offer FREE First Class shipping on most of my items alongside Priority Mail as well an Express service for those of you who need to get something really fast - the fees for these last two options being the responsibility of the buyer. 
I ship items usually on the first or second business day following Paypal payment notification. I always notify of shipping dates so please look out for those emails. Once you have received your package and left me feedback, I will do the same for you.




International buyers:  I apologize to my International Buyers but from now on I will only ship overseas via USPS Express Mail International Flat Rate Envelope. It is more expensive but much faster and provides you with a tracking number so we can both be aware of the package's whereabouts at all times. 
If the item you are purchasing does not fit in an Envelope but needs to be boxed instead, I will ship Priority International fully insured. If this option costs less, you will be refunded the difference; if it's more, I will pay the balance myself.

SALES TAX: Last but unfortunately not least, NY State residents will have to pay sales tax in addition to shipping and insurance fees unless the buyer provides me with their tax exempt status information.  


GarageSale
Payment to be made via Paypal within three days following end of auction. Successful bidder to pay for shipping and, whenever applicable, handling fees. International buyers please note that your country might charge you with import duty/taxes for your purchase. Kindly be advised that we will not falsify customs forms to declare lower values for items shipped internationally nor will we mark them as "gifts". Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
