Hector Aguilar created a series of this bracelet with different themes. These are Aztec symbols that are placed to look like they are each in a picture frame. Picture 4 shows how unusual the bracelet opens. It swings open with one hinge and only the end 1/3 of the bracelet opens. This was not designed to be symmetrical. It has beautiful hand chased workmanship and also has a very high silver content of 940 or better giving it a rich, lux color. The height is 1.25in...
Early in the career of the Los Castillo taller there were these "artifact" necklaces made. They were all different based on the beads, discs and pre Colombian objects collected. Each piece is truly one of a kind. All that I have found are all hallmarked as shown here. These are not to be confused with similar pieces made after 1980 by Los Castillo and marked with the latter version taxation marks...
Antonio Pineda masterfully created this onyx quatrefoil necklace. Tie the velvet cord to any length you desire. The solid sterling balls at the end are wondrous to still be intact as many are lost over the years..Superb condition with no damage or chips. This is an excellent example with the size being proportionate at 2.5in. high, 2 3/8in. across, and a half inch tall bail holding the drop. The weight is 56 grams heavy. Truly a treasure, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
Attractive signed fish pin, approx 3.5" from end to end. 38 grams.
Margot de Taxco # 5112 is absolutely regal. Priced for both the bracelet and necklace. The necklace has 18in. of wearable length and weighs 104 grams. The drop is 5in. across and 3in. tall. The bracelet is 2.25in. tall, has a 2.5in. diameter and weighs 95 grams heavy. Design 5112 is never seen in this variation and is stunning on. I think the only thing I can do is let the pictures attempt to show this one off as it speaks for itself...
