Mexican Deco silver repousse Necklace ~ Hector Aguilar Taxco design

on Oct 24, 2019 in archived

Based on a classic, early Hector Aguilar design this Mexican Deco silver necklace features sculptural florals in an almost heart-shaped frame. One of my favorite creations in the famous designer’s career, it is executed here by an anonymous Taxco maestro whose craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident in the necklace’s quality. I absolutely love the patina that has made the recesses in each link more dramatic thus adding to their three-dimensional appearance. True to its vintage the necklace is a choker size but I have added a really nice sterling extension that makes it comfortable and easy to wear…


Size/Weight: 15 1/4″ – 18 1/2″ (adjstbl; wearable size without the extension is 15″); 1 1/8″ wide; 61.5 grams (with the extension)

Hallmarks / Date: “STERLING MADE IN MEXICO” and des. no 108; pre-1948

Condition: excellent vintage with masterfully executed repoussage that has been enhanced by patina, featuring a lovely, timeless design, with no damage and no repairs noted


SOLD – Thank you!
