This is undoubtedly one of the most unusual Margot pieces I've had. Margot de Taxco ranks among the master designers belonging to the renaissance of Mexican silversmithing, although she was of Dutch/French extraction. She is especially known for the skill and beauty of her enamel on silver creations.The fanciful tiebar offered here is an item I haven't come across before. It measures 2 3/4"L x 1 1/8"W, in excellent condition. It is duly hallmarked and guaranteed authentic.
