Vintage Margot de Taxco sterling silver astrological pendant necklace, this one is for the Leo in your life and like all Margot’s zodiac jewelry, sculptural and heavy. I have paired the pendant with a substantial, hand-wrought Mexican chain of the same period and the two look like they always belonged together…
Size/Weight: pendant is 1 9/18″ in diameter (without the bail) and adds a 2″ drop to the chain; chain necklace is 30″ long; 50.3 grams (for the set; 20.2 for the pendant and 30.1 for the chain)
Hallmarks / Date: on the pendant maker’s signature as shown as well as des. no 5227 and Eagle assay mark (should be 16 but here faintly impressed); chain is marked “STERLING MEXICO” and also has a partially stamped Eagle mark; 1950s-60s
Condition: excellent vintage with warmly glowing patina, quite hefty and with no flaws noted
SOLD – Thank you!
