Emulating a Margot de Taxco design inspired by pre-Colombian motifs, this sterling necklace and earrings demi is signed by a listed yet still unidentified Taxco maestro. Longer than most Mexican necklaces of the period, it consists of stylized feather and repousse semi-sphere links and with the matching earrings, it looks fabulous. It is 17 1/2" long by just shy of 1" wide while the earrings are 1 3/8" long by 5/8" wide. The demi weighs a total 73.5 grams ( 66.5 for the necklace only). It is signed with maker's initials "A.S." as well as "TAXCO MEXICO 925" and Eagle 1 assay mark on the necklace while the earrings have alpaca screw-backs (the rest is sterling silver) and are marked as such on the findings. The set dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition, classy as can be, perfectly finished, with no damage or repairs and gorgeous patina.
