Stunning Taxco modernist sterling silver pendant necklace this set seems to borrow stylistically from both Antonio Pineda (in its use of the black velvet cord) and the Los Ballesteros workshops (in featuring that huge gemstone). The signature it bears, however, attributes it to a listed yet still unidentified Mexican maestro whose work I have had before but about whom we don't really know that much. The pendant's good weight, sweeping, free-flowing curves and the crown-set citrine (according to my gem-tester) are only enhanced by the company of the supple black velvet cord with its sterling spherical tips. Slick, mod, elegant and a pleasure to wear and to behold it measures 31" end to end with the pendant being 3 3/4" long by 1 1/4" wide. It weighs 47.0 grams and is signed with maker's initials "ERE" as well as "STERLING TAXCO MEXICO", "HECHO EN MEXICO" and Eagle 3 assay mark. It dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition having great size, fantastic patina and a stunning gemstone, with the velvet cord in very good shape and no damage nor any repairs noted.
