Early Taxco modernist silver necklace in a design close in spirit to Antonio Pineda’s work, this is an unsigned piece yet one of the most amazing anonymous beauties I have seen lately. The lozenge links are hollow and their 1/4″ thickness imparts to them a visually impressive lift as the necklace rests on the collarbone. The patina is wonderful and the matching bracelet that is also available in my inventory exhibits the same characteristics as the necklace it accompanies. A veritable treat to the discerning collector…
Size/Weight: approx. 15″ long (difficult to ascertain exact wearable length due to the design of the lozenge links); 3/8″ wide at the chain; lozenge part is 5 1/2″ long by 1 1/8″ wide; 63.9 grams
Hallmarks / Date: “TAXCO STERLING”; early to mid-1940s
Condition: excellent vintage with great patina and no repairs or damage noted
SOLD – Thank you!
