One of the best Mexican Deco by pass rings I have ever had, a masterfully made, big example wrought in 980 silver and signed by a maker known for his clamper bracelets as well. Phenomenal attention to detail and finishing and quite elaborate in its execution, this is a visually strong, early Taxco ring. Currently a sz 8.25 it is adjustable upwards. Its face is 1 11/16" by approx. 7/8" wide and the piece weighs 10.1 grams...

Beautiful Chinese Art Nouveau silver brooch in an open-backed repousse foliate design having a carved carnelian "button" bezel set at its center. The stone has interesting color variation and the carving shows a flower and a pear, I believe. Masterfully and carefully executed, this is a brooch of high quality indeed - just note that the carnelian is backed with silver and the piercing in the stone is also transferred to the backing...

One of the best maestros that worked in the style closely associate with Matilde Poulat, A. Tobias is truly masterful in his repousse. The brooch at hand, a big oval-shaped piece, features a floral motif in proud relief against a stippled and hand-chased background. Very reminiscent of Maciel pieces, the brooch is open-backed yet because it's made of thicker gauge silver sheet, very stable and impressive...

An early 20th c. silver filigree ring of Chinese provenance, I believe, this piece is impressive and rather colorful with its bezel set gems. The large faceted stone at the center tests in the sapphire/topaz area on my Presidium gem tester - I cannot say whether natural or synthetic yet the color is gorgeous. There are also amethysts and tiger's eye cabs . Currently a comfortable size 6, the ring can easily be re-sized. Its face is 1 1/4" tall by 7/8" wide and it weighs 9.7 grams...

Vintage Taxco silver by pass ring bearing the signature of Pedro Castillo, a member of the renowned family of silversmiths and designers who worked for Spratling and was a maestro at Aguilar’s Taller Borda.

Its figural scene dominated by a masterfully rendered tree, this is an early 20th c. Chinese silver brooch, big and quite elaborate in its ornamentation. Though we are dealing with closed-back repoussage here, the artist made sure to also pierce through the silver sheet in order to impart the feel of delicate lace to the object. Perfect patina, exquisite workmanship and generous size all combine to create a veritable masterpiece...

A direct reference to Antonio Pineda's work this early Taxco "comma" bracelet is unsigned but its maker's anonymity does not seem to have affected the pride he took in his creations. Beautifully made and carefully finished, with deeply colored stones rich with inclusions, it has good weight but is not overwhelmingly heavy so perfect for the hotter days of summer. The bracelet is 6 3/4' long (wearable) by 1 3/16" wide and weighs48.6 grams...

Old Peruzzi, Florence combination pin/pendant necklace, this is a fabulously worked piece in the shape of a big fleur-de-lis adorned with chasing, beading and set with 6 faceted gems. Having a sage green color, the stones register in the spinel area of my gem tester and they look gorgeous against the patina of their silver frame. I have paired it with an old chain which, I believe, provides a good match in age and proportions to the pendant...

For the lovers of vintage Mexican silver jewelry who are also lovers of equines, a gorgeous set of Margot de Taxco sterling repousse cufflinks in the shape of a horse head.

Each cufflink is 1 1/8" tall by 7/8" wide and the set weighs 10.8 grams. It is fully signed with Margot's name as well as with a badly stamped Eagle mark and des. no 5160. Dating in the 1950s...

Strong presence with its unusual square face and richly colored stones make this vintage Deco Matl-esque ring a feast for the eyes; both those of the beholder as well as those of the bearer. Adorned with a pyramid-cut amethyst and channel-set coral and turquoise cabs its shank is embellished with the familiar wirework and twist-rope accents. Deep oxidation helps bring the color of the stones out and creates the character of this piece. I believe the ring to date in the pre-1948 period though the...

A classic William Spratling design, superb craftsmanship and almost true-to-life details, this is an all silver butterfly brooch. Dating in Spratling's first design period, when winged creatures were a major source of inspiration, this piece has wonderful patina and is in excellent condition.

Appropriately marked "SPRATLING SILVER" in raised letters within an oval reserve as well as "MADE IN MEXICO" in a rectangle, the brooch was made in the mid-1940s.
