s-p2238.  This wonderful old silver pin was crafted back in the 1940's and though it is signed, we can't figure out who the artisan may have been.  But it's really an interesting design -- perhaps representing Medusa?  In very good condition.  You'll find there's something about this face that just kind of grows on you; you'll put it out of your mind, but you'll find yourself thinking about it again...hummm...  SOLD  including shipping in the US.
From the 1940's, a silver bracelet designed by Aquilar!
sb2260.  The bold simplicity of this Hector Aguilar bracelet has its echoes in Pre-Columbian design.  Apprenticed under William Spratling, Aguilar opened Taller Borda, his own studio, in the 1930's and began creating his distinctive architectural jewelry.  This two dimensional silver bracelet is so beautifully crafted!  It's fascinating to see how a piece that is so elemental has such a wonderful rhythm and texture.  A signed piece with 8 interlinked panels, it measures 7-1/2" by 7/8" wide and fastens by running the post (that you see on the guard chain) through channels drilled in the bracelet ends.  SOLD
