 SOLD - Thank you! 
Astounding in its craftsmanship, amazing design and the incredible patina it has developed over the years, a vintage Deco Mexican repousse pectoral wrought in high purity, .940 silver alloy. The maestro signing it, though listed, remains to date unidentified yet I can tell you from experience that he usually works in .940 silver and his repoussage is truly sublime. The mirrored Quetzalcoatl motif we see immaculately executed here shows up from time to time in clamper form - I have never seen a necklace in this design, let alone a museum quality pectoral like the one I feel privileged to present here. Measuring a comfortable 16" long (wearable; actual length is 16 1/4"), its pectoral dragons part is 5 1/4" wide by 3 1/4" tall while the necklace's width at the chain is just above 5/16". It weighs 80.0 grams and is signed with maker's initials "JS" as well as "MEXICO TAXCO" and ".940". It dates in the 1930s-40s and is in excellent vintage condition with museum quality craftsmanship that shows off the layered, rich design; patina to die for and no repairs or damage noted - a stunning necklace for the discerning collector and all of us who appreciate superlative craftsmanship.
