Very nice size, measuring 2 5/8 wide and 2 1/8" high, good weight. Stamped 980 on back, with Made in Mexico, no maker's mark. Likely Taxco work, and the 980 silver standard was used in earlier works, prior to 1950. The face mask depicts a warrior with headdress, ear spools, and facial adornment, a pre-columbian image often found in Mexican art and jewelry. Has visible tarnish, especially in recessed areas, and shows wear and abrasions to silver surface. Please see all photos for details. The claps is a simple c form, and lacks a safety catch, though the pin fits tightly in the clasp. Nice dramatic size, a fine example of early Taxco and Mexican silver jewelry. Shipping via USPS priority mail.
