In one of my favorite pre-1948 Mexican silver designs, this fruit-and leaf necklace and earrings set is impeccably made and has an almost true-to-life quality. Sometimes signed by maker but quite often not, this specific design can be found in mixed metals as well and it never fails to attract the eye with the luscious curves of its fruit and the deep veining and serrated edges of its leaves…
Size/Weight: necklace between 15″-17 1/2″ long (wearable; with the sterling extension provided) by 1 1/8″ wide; earrings are 1 5/8″ long by 7/8″ wide; 84.8 grams (for the set; 72.6 grams for necklace with extension)
Hallmarks / Date: “MEXICO” and “STERLING”; pre-1948
Condition: excellent vintage with dramatic presence, very earthy and feminine at the same time, with no damage or repairs noted and a wonderfully warm patina
