I consider lariat necklaces to be the epitome of classy elegance - though minimalist they can also be quite impressive visually; and their slick figure allows them to be combined with anything you choose to wear. The early Taxco Deco example I am presenting here is perfect for all of us who love lariats yet don't necessarily subscribe to excessively long and generously heavy necklaces. Of medium length, with good yet not overwhelming weight, fantastic patina and "discretely" luscious tassels, it also comes with its original clip. The necklace is 29" in total length with the chain itself being 25 1/2" while each tassel measures 1 3/4". The diameter of the tassel spheres is just above 1/2" and the lariat weighs 89.0 grams. It is signed with maker's initials "GMS" as well as "925" and dates in the 1930s-40s. In
very good vintage condition with stunning presence, great patina and no damage or repairs; there is a very small, shallow impression in one of the tassel beads that looks like it was done during the necklace's crafting - not distracting, it adds character rather than offend the eye.
