Emulating the Los Castillo "Chinese Dragons" necklace which was most probably created by Margot de Taxco when she was still married to Antonio Castillo, a repousse necklace and earrings set for that "dragon lady" in your life! Very good detail, careful finishing and generous length for those of us like our necklaces a little more comfortable than the Deco choker sizes. Measuring 21" long (you could easily have it taken down to 18" by removing one link on either side) with the central "dragons" part being 3 1/8" wide by 1 5/8" tall the necklace is 1/2" wide at the chain while the earrings are 1 1/4" tall by 3/4" wide. The set weighs 56.0 grams (necklace alone is 46.0 grams) and signed "MEXICO 925" albeit partially visible on the necklace and "SILVER MEXICO" on the earrings. It dates in the 1940s and is in excellent vintage condition with nicely executed repoussage and oxidation that adds dimension and visual impact to the design; perfect finishing, great patina and no flaws noted
