Margot de Taxco’s zodiac jewelry, especially her big, sculptural charms, represent some of her best work, in my opinion, and I am happy to offer this vintage Archer bracelet with both the charm and the chunky chain signed by her. I am particularly fond of this specific chain whose three-dimensional quality is more pronounced than that of the more often seen, flatter chains – I think it complements the figure’s quintessentially Deco lines in the best possible way…
Size/Weight: 7 7/8″ long (at least 7.5″ wearable); charm a tad above 1 1/2″ in diameter, adds a 2 1/8″ drop to the chain; chain itself is 5/8″ wide; 79.4 grams (for the set)
Hallmarks / Date: signed appropriately on both pieces with Eagle 16 as shown, Margot de Taxco’s name (albeit very badly stamped on the chain due to lack of space) and des. nos 5224 and 5233 on charm and bracelet respectively; 1950s-60s
Condition: excellent vintage with wonderful patina, quite substantial presence and the added security of a safety chain
SOLD – Thank you!
