Hubert Harmons' whimsical designs never fail to bring a smile and provoke thought. His c. 1940's mask pendant or belt buckle is 5 1/2" across X 2 1/4 high. The raised onyx eyes and silver are in beautiful condition. The mask & detachable sterling chain weighs 100 grams. 2 loops on the front ends of the face were perhaps meant for attaching feathers or some other adornment. The loops on the back accommodate a belt. Fully hallmarked on the back. Harmons' works are rare as he only created in Taxco, Mexico for a short time in the 1940's. This design was featured in the WILLIAM SPRATLING AND THE MEXICAN SILVER RENNAISNCE museum exhibit & is pictured on p. 115 of the exhibit catalog by museum curator & author Penny Morrill.
