Made in the 1930s or early 1940s, a repousse sterling silver necklace from Mexico City in a design betraying a Spanish Colonial influence. Highly stylized florals of this type are a mainstay in the index of early Mexican Deco jewelry and this one in addition to its beautiful repousse is adorned with beading and chasing. The three amethyst cabochons centering the bigger links are rich in inclusions and color variations. Iconic and very very well made – a necklace to stand out of the crowd. Measuring 16 1/2″ long (wearable; actual length is 17 1/4″) with the three central links being 4 7/8″ long by 1 1/2″ wide (for the biggest one) and the chain being 7/8″ wide it weighs 47.8 grams. It is signed with maker’s initials “A.S.” as well as “HECHO EN MEXICO D.F.” and “STERLING” and dates in the 1930s-40s. In excellent vintage condition with beautiful repousse, no problems in the silver nor the stones and great patina.
