huge Arte en Plata Mexican silver cruciform dangle Earrings ~ signed AJ

on Dec 9, 2017 in archived

Big, bold and beautiful, this set of vintage Mexican silver cruciform dangle earrings is signed by a maestro whose initials I have also seen on Arte en Plata jewelry. And since I believe that the specific design is a Jacopo brothers creation and the Eagle on it is the one that they used, I will attribute it to them. In addition to the hallmarks, it is the gauge of the silver used here and the proportions of the pair as well as its quality that support me in my hypothesis…


Size/Weight: 1 7/8″ long by 1″ wide; 28.2 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s intials “AJ” as well as “STERLING MEXICO 925” and Eagle 3 assay mark; 1950s-70s

Condition: excellent vintage, stupendous in their appearance, with great patina that underlines their excellent workmanship, free of damage and repairs



SOLD – Thank you!
