Exquisite Vtg Taxco Mexico Mexican Sterling Silver Amethyst Organic Necklace


EXQUISITE VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER AMETHYST ORGANIC NECKLACE


Description

This is an EXCEPTIONAL vintage sterling silver necklace that was hand wrought in Taxco, circa 1930's to mid 1940's, by a well documented master silver artist who signed their pieces "MPO". This magnificent necklace is masterfully crafted in a feminine and artistic organic motif that has a beautiful art nouveau look. The necklace has a sculptural sterling silver links that are stylized leaves with hand chased details. The links in the front of the necklace have stylized flower accents ~ sterling cones that are holding luscious, dark purple tear drop shaped amethyst stones. The links overlap and are connected at the top which allows the necklace to lay gracefully when worn. Since the connections don't show from the front, the necklace has lovely, uninterrupted design flow. The clasp is a tongue and box closure that works perfectly and closes with a crisp 'click'. 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 ~ looks gorgeous on and is sure to bring forth many compliments ~ it would be a grand asset to any vintage Taxco silver collection! PLEASE BE SURE TO SEE THE MATCHING EARRINGS THAT ARE ALSO LISTED. I have included a photo of my assistant wearing this necklace with the matching earrings but this sale is for the necklace only.

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 16-3/8", width is 5/8", and weight is 45.9 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings/dents to the silverwork (the last link in the back has a slight variation in the silver at the bottom of the link/is NOT noticeable and can't be seen when worn/please see last photo for close-up taken with my macro lens which greatly magnifies images) ~ minor scratches due to loving wear and age ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "MPO, TAXCO, STERLING, 925, MEXICO". Artist "MPO" and this hallmark are shown on page 235 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks (2006 edition).

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.
