early Mexican modernist silver Necklace ~ Taxco Antonio Pineda style lozenge links

on Dec 17, 2016 in archived

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!
