Maricela Mexican silver hibiscus Necklace ~ Isidro Pina Taxco floral design

on Aug 7, 2016 in archived


Exhibiting the superlative craftsmanship and attention to detail maestro Isidro Garcia Pina’s jewelry is known and collected for, a vintage Maricela Mexican silver necklace whose floral links remind me of hibiscus blossoms. Pina is associated with Taxco naturalism and his rendition of flowers and foliage is en par with similar Scandinavian pieces. I love the fleshiness of the links, the way the petals curl and the deep chasing for the veins that makes them look almost true to life…


Size/Weight: 16  3/4″ long (wearable; once clasped, it becomes a little roomier at 17  1/4″) by 1  1/8″ wide; 67.2 grams

Hallmarks / Date: fully and appropriately signed with the line’s name as well as “STERLING” and “925 Tasco”; possibly a badly stamped Eagle mark there as well but too difficult to tell; 1940s-50s

Condition: excellent vintage with the warmest glowing patina you have seen and absolutely no flaws noted


SOLD – Thank you!
