Pre-1948 Mexican silver pectoral necklace in the style closely associated with Taxco and several of the big talleres, the Los Castillo, Margot de Taxco and Gerardo Lopez being among them. There is no maker’s signature here but I would like to think that it was made by one of the maestros working for those famous workshops. This is a carefully, lovingly made necklace with good repoussage and good finishing. It has acquired a silky patina over its long life and though incredibly impressive to the eye, it is not cumbersome to wear as it is also a little longer than your usual Taxco Deco necklace…
Size/Weight: 16 1/2″ long (wearable; might even feel a little roomier due to the dip in the design at center front); pectoral part is 4 1/8″ wide and has a drop of 3″; width at the chain is 1/2″; 80.4 grams
Hallmarks / Date: simply signed “TAXCO STERLING 925”; early to mid-1940s
Condition: excellent vintage with very good workmanship and nice finishing, a silky, warmly glowing patina, no damage nor any repairs noted – a truly beautiful, early Taxco pectoral
SOLD – Thank you!
