Abraham Paz Mexican silver amethyst mask Ring ~ iconic Deco design

on Feb 5, 2015 in archived


There can be no other design that epitomizes Mexican Deco better than Abraham Paz’s “mask”. One of the maestro’s earliest creations, it can be found with Fred Davis’s signature as well as with Paz’s initials – like the ring at hand. Splendidly shaped, the “mask” is only  minimally carved to denote the eyes, nose and mouth. The tiered setting with its tiers also reflected on the sides of the shank represents elegance in its purest form…


Size/Weight: sz 7 (yet easily resizable); face is 3/4″ square; ring rises 1/2″ off finger when worn; 8.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s initials “AP” as shown as well as “STERLING MEXICO”; 1920s-30s

Condition: excellent vintage with a stunning stone, great patina and in one of the most amazing, Mexican minimalist Deco designs
