Circa 1940-1945, this early Los Castillo necklace is a very rare design with the centerpiece. Collector quality.
Twenty-six winged repoussé links with a center floral panel make this a standout necklace. Likely a Margot de Taxco / Margot van Voorhies Carr creation, as Margot was married to Antonio Castillo during the early years of Los Castillo, and designed for them.
Measures a closed, wearable length of 17 1/2". The winged panels are 1 3/8" wide. Centerpiece measures 2 1/8" x 1 3/16".
Weight is 108.9 grams.
Signed and hallmarked with a linear mark "Los Castillo 187 Taxco Sterling Mexico". I believe this is a higher purity than 925, likely 980.
In excellent vintage condition.
