Hector Aguilar Mexican 940 silver dangle Earrings with cascabeles and wire-work

on Sep 12, 2018 in archived

A rather difficult to come upon Hector Aguilar pair of earrings, this set, wrought in his favorite .940 silver alloy, is dominated by long, beautifully shaped cascabeles that are further embellished with wire-work appliques at the very end of them. Hanging off a delicate “H”-shaped station with curled ends and beading, the cascabeles glisten playfully as the light passes over them. Distinctly elegant, not overwhelming in their proportions yet still impressive enough to attract the eye and hold the gaze captive…


Size/Weight: 2″ long by 9/16″ wide; 13.2 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately marked as shown with a combination of hallmarks that dates them in the late 1940s (see Hougart, Little Book of Mexican Silver, p. 15, fig. A-20, electronic edition)
