Antonio Pineda Mexican 970 silver Pendant Necklace with velvet cord ~ the Hunters

on Sep 2, 2018 in archived

Stunningly beautiful and quite bold in its proportions this Antonio Pineda .970 silver and velvet pendant necklace is inspired by cave drawings of pre-historic hunters like the ones in Lascaux. The massive axe-shaped pendant wrought employing the “shadow box” technique showcases slender black figures during the tense hours of a long ago completed hunt. The luscious velvet cord that complements it has hand-hammered arrow head tips at either end. Superb…

 

Size/Weight: 27″ long (from arrow-head end to arrow-head end); pendant is 5″ wide and adds a 2 1/2″ drop to the cord; 105.4 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully hallmarked with Antonio’s crown signature, des. no YY 581, Eagle 17, 970 SILVER and HECHO EN MEXICO; 1960s

Condition: excellent vintage with no damage or repairs noted, stunning presence, the velvet cord as good as new and nice patina; the little silver pin that closes the hole through which the hammered arrowheads are secured to the velvet cord is missing in one of them – the cord is very securely attached and there is no fear of losing anything but I needed to mention it here

 

 

SOLD – Thank you!
