classic Mexican Deco repousse silver Necklace in a Fred Davis design

on Jun 20, 2017 in archived

Early Mexican Deco silver repousse necklace in a design associated with the opening years of Fred Davis’s career, the layered beading that is features has become a classic in the country’s 20th c. Silver Renaissance. Beguilingly luscious, irresistible to the eye and so comfortable to wear, this is one of those necklaces around which collections are built! I particularly love the all-silver version at hand with its lower perimeter free of any connections between the links that allows it to fan elegantly around the neck…


Size/Weight: 17  3/8″ long (17  1/4″ wearable); width 1  1/8″; 105.1 grams

Hallmarks / Date: not marked for maker nor hallmarked for silver content yet tested and guaranteed to be silver of sterling quality;my experience over the years has shown me that it is not uncommon for early Mexican silver jewelry not to be hallmarked at all; 1920s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with generous length that makes it comfortable for most of us, patina to die for, quite impressive visually, no damage or repairs noted and with the added security of a safety chain



SOLD – Thank you!
