Biomorphic sterling silver appliques on a highly oxidized "puffy" background take center-stage in this modernist Mexican set of Salvador Teran earrings. I grew up close to the sea so to my eyes, it's little crabs catching a bit of sun on mossy beach pebbles that are pictured here but your mind's eye might see something entirely different. Precious like all Salvador jewelry, beautifully made, not entirely identical as is the case with hand-wrought pieces of wearable art. Bottom-line? Irresistible! Measuring approx. 1" by 3/4"the earring weigh 14.4 grams (for the set) and are signed with maker's name as shown as well as "STERLING MEXICO", des. no 162 and Eagle 56 assay mark. The set dates in the 1950s-60s and is in excellent vintage condition with great patina, its oxidation in very good shape and no damage or repairs noted.
