rare Margot de Taxco Mexican silver Necklace Bracelet set ~ geometric knot des. 5384

on Jan 11, 2019 in Bracelets, Mexican and Latin American, Necklaces

A very difficult design to find, Margot de Taxco’s no 5384 is sheer geometry and a celebration of dark, rich oxidation. It is understandable then that I am thrilled to be presenting the necklace and bracelet demi here. Raised sterling bands around the perimeter of the cut-out design lend three-dimensional appeal to both pieces which is further accentuated by the black surfaces they define. This is by far my favorite “knot” design of hers; not too simple, not overwhelmingly complicated – just guaranteed attention grabber. And the proportions of the bracelet are to die for. A must-have for the discerning collector and lover of all things beautiful alike…

 

Size/Weight: necklace: 16 1/2″ (wearable; might even feel a little more comfortable due to the dip at center front); central “knot” link is 3″ wide and adds a 1 7/8″ drop to the necklace; width at the chain is 5/16″; 54.4 grams // bracelet: 7 1/4″ inner circumference (clasped) by 2 1/8″ wide; 113.3 grams // total weight for set: 167.7 grams

Hallmarks / Date: both pieces are fully and appropriately signed as shown with Margot’s logo as well as “STERLING MADE IN MEXICO”, Eagle 16 and des no 5384; 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with nice patina, the oxidation in great shape, stunning in their geometry, with no damage or repairs noted – a rare treasure by Margot de Taxco
