Margot de Taxco Mexican silver zodiac pendant Necklace ~ Leo des. 5227

on Jun 17, 2015 in archived


margotleo5Vintage 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!
