I found this piece last week in a second-hand store. It was black and brown, and really looking sad. For a few dollars I decided to take my chances. After some hours of cleaning it (and I really mean hours) it revealed its true self. It is marked TAXCO, Mexico, Sterling 925, Sr C, and a mark I cannot read. The piece is rather large. It measures more that 3 1/2 inches at the widest spot.
Is this kind of jewelry collectible? How old could it be? Your help is appreciated.

Thanks for looking:)

    It's a very nice bracelet. This style was popular and made by more than one manufacturer in Mexico. It would be helpful to see the closeup of the mark, or you may want to visit this reference website and check out Mexican Silver Marks for yourself:

    Thanks davyd286. I am really bad at taking pictures. I'll try to get one of the mark but even with the magnifying glass it was next to impossible to read the second mark.

    Also many thanks to vetraio50, Moonstonelover, nldionne, and bratjdd:)

    Thanks Woman34 and PhilDavidAlexanderMorris:)
    Stillwater, thanks for your comment. I will do some research. When I saw it, I knew that I wanted it - but I wasn't sure if there was any value to it, other than the silver.
