1930's Vtg Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Chrysoprase Necklace For Sale

1930's Vtg Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Chrysoprase Necklace


1930's VTG MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER CHRYSOPRASE NECKLACE


Description

**PLEASE NOTE THAT CLEARED PAYPAL PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED FOR THIS sale NO LATER THURSDAY, JULY 25TH AS I WILL BE AWAY FROM FRIDAY, JULY 26TH THROUGH SUNDAY, AUGUST 2ND. NEW TREASURES WILL BE LISTING WHILE I AM AWAY SO PLEASE KEEP WATCHING!**

This is a MAGNIFICENT vintage sterling silver necklace that was hand wrought in Mexico, circa 1930's to mid 1940's, by a well documented silver artist who signed their pieces with a conjoined "TC". This exceptional necklace is masterfully crafted in an artistic and sculptural motif that has a great art deco look. The necklace consists of sterling silver links that have feminine scroll flourishes with hand chased designs and tiny silver bead accents ~ the scrolls are framing luscious dark green chrysoprase cabochons that are bezel set in silver. The links are connected at the top with soldered silver jump rings which allows the necklace to lay gracefully and beautifully when worn. The silver has acquired a beautiful, soft age earned patina. This magnificent necklace is extremely well made in an elegant and sophisticated design that will always be in vogue ~ bold and beautiful, it would look great with a cocktail dress, a business suit, or with your favorite jeans and camisole ~ it is sure to be noticed and admired ~ it would be a grand asset to any vintageMexican silver jewelry collection! PLEASE BE SURE TO SEE THE MATCHING EARRINGS AND BRACELET THAT ARE ALSO LISTED!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 15-7/8" and I am including two 3" silver extenders (one is attached to the hook portion of the clasp and the other is attached to the opposite end of the clasp and you hook the two together as shown in the photo) which extends the wearable length to 18-7/8" (I have included photos of my marketing assistant wearing the necklace with and without the extension), width is 1", and weight is 73.5 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ no chips, cracks or damage to chrysoprase cabochons ~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "HECHO EN MEXICO D.F., TC (conjoined), 0925". Artist "TC" and this hallmark are shown on page 213 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2013 edition). Mr. Hougart's new edition of his book is now available here on from seller "CICATRIX!" or at your favorite online or bricks and mortar book store!

PLEASE NOTE: For Mexican jewelry artists and designers, silver is their canvas. In their hands, craft meets creativity and silver becomes wearable art. The various techniques are like a painter’s brushstrokes ~ they make each piece unique and a timeless object of beauty. Mexican vintage silver jewelry is handwrought, and therefore, not perfect ~ each piece will have variances that indicate that the piece is hand made. Vintage pieces will show various signs of wear since they have been pre-loved ~ items are described to the best of my ability and any damage will be noted.

Please email me with any questions and check out my other sales. I try to list new treasures several times per week ~ all of my sales begin and end in five minute intervals, beginning at 9PM ET. Thanks for your interest!
