Antonio Reina Mexican Deco silver repousse Necklace Earrings set in a Margot de Taxco style

on Apr 23, 2017 in archived

Bold repousse, deeply oxidized recesses and a sculptural by inception design combine in this stunning Mexican Deco sterling silver demi comprised of a necklace and matching earrings. Bearing the initials habitually attributed to Antonio Reina, this is a superb example of its maker’s mastery over the art of repoussage – I could never exaggerate its visual impact nor could I even come close to describing the warm, glowing patina the set has developed over its long life…

 

 

Size/Weight: necklace is 16 1/4″ (wearable; actual length just shy of 17″; it can easily accept an extension, should you need it) by 3/4″ wide; earrings are just shy of 1 1/2″ tall by 3/4″ wide; 58.6 grams (for the set; 49.3 grams for necklace alone)

Hallmarks / Date: Reina’s initials “AAR” on earrings and “STERLING TAXCO MEXICO” with des. no 4 on  necklace; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with bold, masterful repoussage, strong visual impact, great patina and no damage or repairs noted

 

SOLD – Thank you!
