Unsigned like many early Taxco masterpieces the repousse silver necklace at hand is very reminiscent of similar Los Castillo and Margot de Taxco pectorals. Its basketweave design, accented with tiny beading and oxidation, bespeaks its maker’s superb craftsmanship and has acquired a warm patina over time (you can always buff it up a little, if you wish).

Good weight and a beautifully executed intricate design combine to create a necklace worthy of the best collection…
