Margot de Taxco Mexican silver and enamel Quetzalcoatl Necklace ~ des. no 5753

on Jun 25, 2016 in archived


One of Margot de Taxco’s most vividly colored enamel necklaces, this Quetzalcoatl piece is incredibly versatile. The silver and black chain can be paired with other Margot pendants while the pendant can be dis-attached and worn as a brooch by itself. I am not aware of any other Margot designs that convey such an intense sense of the jungle, an effect accomplished by her workshop’s unparalleled mastery of the enameling process. Divine…


Size/Weight: pendant is 2  5/8″ in diameter and adds an equally long drop to the chain; chain is 21″; 99.2 grams

Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature as shown as well as “STERLING MADE IN MEXICO”, des. no 5753 and Eagle 16 assay mark; 1950s-60s
