hefty Cheo Mexican silver modernist Necklace ~ Antonio Pineda design

on Sep 8, 2018 in Mexican and Latin American, Necklaces

Strong industrial design catches the eye in this early modernist Mexican silver necklace signed by Cheo. Based on an Antonio Pineda original, the example presented here features thick green onyx glass bars set in heavy sterling links. Touching on brutalism, this is a less-is-more necklace that still makes a pretty impressive statement and is a joy to wear and to behold…

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO TAXCO 925”; 1940s

Condition: excellent vintage with strong geometry and presence, a beautiful, rich green in the glass bars, very nice patina and no damage or repairs noted

 

 

Offered at $300.00
