Los Castillo Mexican silver big repousse Dangle Earrings ~ des. no 478

on Jul 15, 2015 in archived


Early Los Castillo Mexican  silver repousse set of earrings, this is a stunning pair, big, bold and definitely eye-catching! I find the predominance of circles and spheres quite alluring and appreciate the way the patina accentuating the design’s recesses has added to the set’s architecturality…


Size/Weight: 2  1/4″ long by 1  3/4″ wide (at their widest); 24.1 grams (for the set)

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “TAXCO 925”, “MADE IN MEXICO STERLING” and Eagle 15 assay mark; late 1940s-50s

Condition: excellent vintage with big visual impact, fantastic patina that can always be polished to a higher sheen, if you want, and no flaws noted


SOLD – Thank you!
