Sigi Pineda mod silver necklace that illustrates, I believe, the maestro’s ability to create stunning jewelry without having to resort to burdensomely elaborate desings. Based on the dramatic contrast of highly polished silver against dark, oxidized backgrounds, the necklace at hand is sophisticated in its minimalism, a pleasure to wear and to behold, and a true Tasco (sic) modernist treasure.
One of Sigi’s more difficult to find necklaces…
Size/Weight: just shy of 16″ long; central part is 4″ wide and 1″ tall; width of chain itself is 5/16; 74.4 grams
Hallmarks/Date: maker’s name is script above “Tasco” as well as “MADE IN MEXICO STERLING”, Eagle 3 assay mark and des. no 15; 1950s
Condition: excellent vintage with its oxidation in great shape, very impressive and with no flaws noted – a rare example of Sigi necklace and a collector’s dream
SOLD – Thank you!
