    I am really stumped here. The bracelet looks Mexican to me but I cannot read the mark. Does it say Mexico, Taxco, or something else?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks for looking:)

      Love this my friend! I can't read the mark either - but this is very similar to other wide cuffs of copper and brass from Mexico. I think this is from the 70's or 80's. I have been watching these mixed metal cuff bracelets for a long time. There are some 60's-70's that have silver overlays with animal overlays - snakes, cougars, monkeys...

      Wouldn't it be Peruvian, the Nazca Lines of Peru? Looks like the monkey or something but it's hard to see.

      seeing a picture of the rest of it - from different angles would be helpful. from here it looks either Mexican or Peruvian, but the signature does not. Does it say 'Farr & Co.'?

      Thanks everyone for your comments and help. My camera was out of memory so I was only able to take one photo. I will add some more soon.
      I think the image is a serpent.
      No matter how hard I try, I cannot figure out what it says. To me it looks like a few letters in front of what could be "Taxco" but honestly, I cannot tell.
      Thanks, my friends, Mary, TreasureTex, and ho2cultcha:)

      As long as it doesn't read, MADE IN CHINA !!

      Blunderbuss2, you made me laugh! But you are right. I don't mind at all the old stuff, though, but I stay away from the new one:)

      My wife is from Lima Peru and she said that she saw the Nazca Lines but she did not think that this one looks familiar. I am American and thought at first that it looked like it was Peruvian but I certainly could be wrong again.

      Thanks so much for your comment, TreasureTex. I wish I could see the Nazca Lines one day in person. What a great creation! Some time ago I found a bangle with the Nazca Lines and it is one of my favorite pieces to wear but for some reason, I didn't make a connection to the copper bangle I found : https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/203335-950-silver-cuff-depicting-nazca-lines-fr?in=collection-6545

      TreasureTex, I think you and your wife are right, this is Peruvian. I watch these online because I love them, and I think both countries used copper and brass and sometimes sterling depending on the craftsman.

      I am looking for the bracelet to match this.
