For those of us who are in love with the sleek lines of minimalist abstraction a pre-1980 sterling silver Tane necklace in a modernist “parrot” design. It is not just the unimpeded flow of the lines in the bird’s rendition that elevate this piece in the realm of the coveted and the unusual, it is also the inventive clasp that hides in the design that impresses. Pre-1980 Tane jewelry is not very easy to find and the example I am offering here justifies, I think, the company’s reputation as the “Tiffany’s of Mexico”.,,
Size/Weight: approx. 15″ long; parrot part is 3 3/4″ long by 3/4″ wide; 100.00 grams
Hallmarks / Date: fully signed with the taller’s name, Eagle 206 assay mark as well as “MEXICO” and “STERLING 925”; pre-1980
Condition: very good vintage; definitely a show-stopper
