Salvador Teran Mexican silver Taxco Necklace ~ modernist Noblemen design no 132

on Feb 22, 2016 in archived


Out of Salvador Teran’s masterful shadowbox line, a figural necklace that does not come up often featuring layered portraits of an ancient nobleman / warrior in its centerpiece. Steeped in Mexico’s history albeit through Salvador’s modernist gaze, the necklace is a piece of wearable art with its medallion leaning slightly forward as you have it on to allow for maximum visual impact. The matching earrings are also available…


Size/Weight: 15 1/2″ long (wearable; it probably wears a little bigger due to the way the central link sits but it’s very difficult to measure with accuracy); “noblemen” link is¬†2 1/8″ wide by 1 1/4″ tall; width at the chain 1/2″; 61.8 grams

Hallmarks / Date: Salvador’s signature in cursive as well as “STERLING MEXICO”, Eagle assay mark (partially hidden by construction as is the design no but they are 36 and 132 respectively on the matching earrings that are also available); 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with fantastic patina and no damage or repairs


SOLD – Thank you!
