Having worked as early as at least the middle Taxco period, maestro Morales is known for his high quality jewelry in the style of Matilde Poulat. The cross pendant necklace I am presenting here is from the post-1980 period yet retains the attention to workmanship, materials and finishing that his earlier pieces are collected for. And the fact that it comes with its original, heavy chain dating in the same period as the pendant is an added bonus…
Size/Weight: 4″ long (without the bail) by 2 7/8″ wide for the pendant; chain is 24 5/8″ long and 1/8″ wide; 60.2 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: pendant signed with Morales’s name as well as his registration code MC-102; chain is marked “TM-71” and also bears maker’s initials as shown; 1980s for both pieces
Condition: excellent vintage, heavy and very well made, with all its jewels intact and having great patina
SOLD – Thank you!
