Within the realm of Deco Egyptian Revival jewelry albeit toward the very end of the period this Margot de Taxco silver and enamel figural brooch glows like molten gold under the sun. The rich hue of the exotic dancer’s attire is set off dramatically against chocolate skin and the sky blue jewels around the figure’s neck and on the ears are reflected in the fabric and the fans as well. Masterful and enigmatic – is this a man or a woman?
Size/Weight: 1 3/4″ tall by 1 3/8″ wide; 13.3 grams
Hallmarks / Date: maker’s signature albeit only partially stamped as well as Eagle 16 assay mark and des. no 5708; 1950s
Condition: very good vintage with an amazing inner glow that will sweep you off your feet, exhibiting all the characteristics that make Margot jewelry avidly collected, with the enamel in great shape – no cracks or breaks, just a very very tiny spot of wear at the tip of the dancer’s left foot and at the knee (as you look at it); not discernible to the naked eye and definitely not offensive
SOLD – Thank you!
