A copper glyph of a highly stylized Maya or Aztec bird motif is set in sterling and adorns the triangular dangle in a set of Los Castillo "mixed metals" earrings from the mid-20th c.. As is the case with many pieces executed in the "metales casados" technique, here too an ancient design is re-interpreted, given a slick, modernist twist and thrust into our contemporary world in a way that ensures it belongs and expresses our modern sensibilities. Measuring 1 5/8" long by 7/8" wide the earrings weighs 17.9 grams (for the set) and are marked with taller's signature as shown as well as "MADE IN MEXICO STERLING", des. no 72 and Eagle 15 assay mark. The set dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition with the superb craftsmanship and perfect finishing all Los Castillo "mixed metals" jewelry is known for, having fantastic patina and no damage or repairs noted.
