long Mexican Deco silver repousse dangle Earrings ~ pre-Colombian moth

on Apr 10, 2018 in archived

Generously long Mexican Deco silver dangle earrings in a rather unusual pre-Colombian moth design, this set is masterfully crafted and has a warm, glowing patina that enhances the deep recesses in the repoussage. I am very partial to statement-making earrings and this pair undoubtedly fits the bill. Perfectly proportioned, made of good gauge sterling sheet yet not too heavy as to become unwearable, they will stay with you for a very long time…


Size/Weight: 2  3/8″ long by 7/8″ wide; 13.7 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: simply marked “MEXICO SILVER”; 1930s-40s

Condition: excellent vintage with warm patina, beautiful repoussage and stunning presence – no damage and no repairs either



SOLD – Thank you!
