early TAXCO 980 silver PECTORAL NECKLACE stunning MEXICAN DECO repousse

on Sep 27, 2014 in archived


Early Taxco necklace in emulation of Matilde Poulat’s “Mexico City” repousse, this piece is wrought in 980 silver and its beauty is beyond words. Intense “tribal” flair , deep patina, strong repousse and the splash of green added by the malachite cabs combine to create a necklace fit for pre-Colombian royalty. Stunning…


Size/Weight: approx. 17″ long (wearable; it’s a little difficult to measure exactly due to the curve in the pectoral); pectoral part is 6  1/2″ wide and 2  3/4″ tall (at center front); 100.0 grams (on a postal scale)

Hallmarks / Date: “980 TAXCO”; 1930s-early 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with no flaws noted, the patina you want to see on pieces of this age and vividly colored stones
