Betancourt “Toro” Cuff


Description: A rare vintage cuff attributed to Betancourt from our curated selection of vintage mid century modern Mexican jewelry.

It features a large bull’s head in copper and brass with green enamel consistent with their design of other pieces in the Mayan style from the 1950s. This is a super example of vintage modern Mexican design and wearable art.
