An elaborate sterling silver knot hanging off a classic repousse semi-sphere takes center-stage in this set of vintage Mexican dangle earrings by renowned Taxco maestro Pedro Castillo. I love Pedro Castillo's work for its complexity and layering and the modernist twist it adds to motifs derived from Mexico's rich cultural past. And even though these beauties are of medium length, they do pack a strong visual punch with their strategically applied oxidation and the warm patina they have developed over their long, interesting life. Measuring 1 1/4" long by 5/8" wide the earrings weigh 8.8 grams (for the set) and are fully signed with maker's conjoined initials "PC" as well as "HECHO EN MEXICO TAXCO", "STERLING" alongside des. no 121. They date in the 1940-48 period and are in
excellent vintage condition with great patina, a visually attractive design, with no damage and no repairs noted.
