Emulating the Los Castillo “Chinese Dragons” necklace which was most probably created by Margot de Taxco when she was still married to Antonio Castillo, a repousse necklace and earrings set for that “dragon lady” in your life! Very good detail, careful finishing and generous length for those of us like our necklaces a little more comfortable than the Deco choker sizes…

 

Size/Weight: 21″ long (you could easily have it taken down to 18″ by removing one link on either side); central “dragons” part is 3  1/8″ wide by 1  5/8″ tall; width at the chain is 1/2″ (at its widest); earrings are 1  1/4″ tall by 3/4″ wide; 56.0 grams (for the set; necklace alone is 46.0 grams)

Hallmarks / Date: “MEXICO 925” albeit partially visible on the necklace and “SILVER MEXICO” on the earrings; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with very nicely executed repoussage and oxidation that adds dimension and visual impact to the design; perfect finishing, great patina and no flaws noted

 

Offered at $550.00
