early Taxco Mexican silver Necklace in a Danish mod foliate design

By in archived |

Cross-pollination is as important in the world of jewelry design as it is in any other aspect of human civilization and the early Taxco silver necklace at hand is quite an example! Hand-wrought in Mexico in the 1940s, it betrays a strong Danish mod (or Scandinavian in general) influence and brings to mind David Andersen’s foliate jewelry. I love the heart-shaped leaves with the hand-etched veins and the tiny little beading that accents them…   Size/Weight: 18″ long (wearable; actual length is 18  1/2″) by 3/4″ wide; 57.5 grams Hallmarks / Date: simply marked “TAXCO STERLING”; mid-1940s Condition: excellent vintage with warmly glowing patina, nicely executed design and no flaws noted   SOLD – Thank you!
