A stunning vintage Mexican necklace and earrings in sterling silver with large cabochon amethysts in a classic Fred Davis design. Featured in Mexican Silver, by Morrill and Berk on page 29. This set includes the earrings, (we've never seen them before!) Necklace measures approximately 15 1/4 " around and 1" wide. Earrings measure 1 1/4" across and 1 1/4" tall. Earrings have been converted to posts. Set is in very good condition, has some minor scratches. Shows some wear, could use some polishing, but will leave that up to the new owner. Bears the eagle stamp (22) that was used by Fred Davis and Sanborn's, which is the department store in Mexico City where Fred Davis managed the antiques and fine crafts department for 20 years. The craftsmanship, construction and hallmarks on this set point to Fred Davis' work. Necklace is signed Mexico Sterling Eagle 22 and the earrings say Mexico Sterling.
