 SOLD. Thank you.  
Extremely rare and important necklace and bracelet set by Ana Maria Nunez de Brilanti (Victoria), who along with Margot Van Voorhies Carr ( Margot de Taxco ) Matilde Poulat (MATL), was one of the top female designers and producers during the golden age of Taxco.

It is a very early set, circa 1940's. It is made of the highest grade 980 silver in a lovely floral design, perhaps sunflowers which are a whopping 1 3/8 inches across. We have never seen another of this design.

The necklace is a very wearable 15 1/2 - 15 3/4 inches long x 1 3/8 wide, with a hook clasp. Marked 980 Victoria (her shop mark), Taxco, model number 43, and Made in Mexico. A tiny silver bead missing on a couple flowers, but it does not detract from the beauty.

The matching bracelet is about 7 1/2 - 7 5/8 inches long x 1 3/8 wide, with a push box clasp, marked 980 Victoria Taxco, model number 50, and Made in Mexico.
