19th C Victorian Gold and Pearls Filigree Necklace
Exceptional antique Mexican necklace from Tehuantepec. This is one of the finest pieces we have found. The filigree is very tight and fine. All the pearls are natural with seed and natural ocean pearls. The gold test at 12 k which is is typical of this work. A necklace like this would have been worn by Tehuanas during special Holidays or family celebrations. Very much i the style worn by Frida Kahlo. This necklace came from an old collection. The necklace proper is 18 Inches long and the pendant is another 3" long. In excellent condition with no damage or repairs. COLLECTOR QUALITY
