early Mexican Deco silver repousse Necklace ~ classic Taxco pre-Colombian design

on Oct 30, 2016 in archived


Deco Mexican silver repousse necklace, its closely set links inspired by pre-Colombian motifs with beaded accents and deep chasing, this piece is signed by A. S., a listed yet still unidentified maestro. A.S. is known for his prowess in the art of repoussage – over the years I have had several examples in various forms by him and can attest to the careful workmanship, meticulous finish and gorgeous design that characterize his work.Very reminiscent of early Los Castillo creations and en par with them in quality and beauty…
