Jose Anton Mexican Deco silver and jade Necklace ~ Taxco modernist design

on Nov 27, 2016 in archived


Vintage Mexican Deco Jose Anton sterling silver necklace in a design that successfully marries pre-Colombian feather or scale motifs with an early modernist minimalism. I have sold several pieces by maestro Anton over the years and have never been disappointed in the quality of his workmanship and the materials he uses. Here, the jade cabs are richly colored and stand out against the warmly glowing silver…
