Elegant Vtg 1930s Taxco Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Nouveau Necklace For Sale


ELEGANT VTG 1930s TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER NOUVEAU NECKLACE


Description

This is an EXTRAORDINARY sterling silver repousse necklace that was hand wrought in Taxco, circa 1930's to mid 1940's and has simple, early marks of "STERLING, TAXCO".This magnificent necklace is masterfully crafted in a dramatic and artistic motif that has a wonderful art nouveau look. It is richly textured, regal in bearing and Mexican by design ~ it is EXQUISITELY detailed!The necklacehas a sculptural sterling silver repousse central pendant that has a lovely orchestration of feminine scroll flourishes that are accented with demi spheres and teeny tiny handmade silver beads. There are silver repousse links that havescrolls with demi spheres and silver beading on either side of the central pendant that complete the necklace. Repoussage is a metal working technique in which malleable metals (such as sterling silver) is shaped or ornamented by hammering from the reverse or underside. This technique is extremely time consuming and can take an artist an entire day or several days to complete just one piece! The central pendant and links are connected at the top with soldered silver jump rings which allows the necklace to lay gracefully and beautifully when worn. The clasp is a simple hook closure that is seen on much of the early Mexican jewelry. The silver has acquired a wonderful, soft patina that reflects the shadows created by the depth of the designs. This spectacular necklace is extremely well made in an elegant and sophisticated motif that will always be in vogue ~ a bold and beautiful masterpiece that is sure to bring many compliments ~ an early andtimeless art-to-wear treasure that would be a grand asset to any vintage Taxco silver collection.PLEASE BE SURE TO SEE THE MATCHING EARRINGS AND BRACELET THAT ARE ALSO LISTED.

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 17" and I'm includinga 3" silver chain extender that may be worn in the back where it doesn't show and extends the wearable length to 20" ~ I have included photos of my assistant wearing the necklace alone and with the extension, width is 1-1/8", and weight is65.4 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings/dents to the silverwork ~ minor scratches due to loving wear and age ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: Simple early marks: "STERLING, TAXCO".

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.
