Rare Margot De Taxco Snake Serpent Vintage Sterling Silver Enamel Ring Mexican  For Sale

Rare Margot De Taxco Snake Serpent Vintage Sterling Silver Enamel Ring Mexican 

RARE MARGOT de TAXCO SNAKE SERPENT VINTAGE STERLING SILVER ENAMEL RING MEXICAN  COVER BOOK PIECE ~ GREEN MELANGE ENAMEL~ DESIGN # 5554


Circa mid-century, here is an exceptional ring from Margot van Voorhies Carr, whose shop was called Margot de Taxco.


It's a book piece, shown on the back cover of Penny C. Morrill's book "Margot van Voorhies, The Art of Mexican Enamelwork".


Certainly one of the most sought after designs that Margot produced, her serpent, or snake ring, is very rarely seen. Copies abound, but this is an original and authentic Margot piece. The confetti green enamel is actually a myriad of colors, with various shades of greens, browns, blues, and yellows. All translucent. The collar is a gorgeous teal green.



Margot van Voorhies Carr, professionally known as Margot de Taxco, first came to Mexican in 1937. Married to Don Antonio Castillo, she created many of the early designs for Los Castillo. Her own shop, "Margot de Taxco", opened in 1949 after her divorce, and included over twenty silversmiths and ten enamelists, with Sigi Pineda overseeing the enamelers for four years before opening his own shop in the mid-1950's.


Measures a size 7, but it is adjustable. The snake head is 1 3/8" X 13/16", with a depth of 3/8'.


Weighs 7.2 grams.


Hallmarked "5554", with the eagle assay 16. 5554 is the number for Margot's snake/serpent design. No other marks that I see, but it's definitely an authentic Margot de Taxco piece, and likely was part of a parure. It was not uncommon for some pieces (especially smaller ones), to not have all hallmarks on them.


In very good vintage condition, with some enamel loss on either side of the head. I've shown lots of photos, so please click on and enlarge them. If you would like additional photos, just message me.

Please note that vintage jewelry has been pre-owned, worn, and loved by it's previous owner. Much of the charm and beauty of vintage Mexican jewelry comes from the unique variations and characteristics inherent in hand-wrought silver. At times you may be able to see the artisan's tool marks - such is the nature of hand-made jewelry. It's not new and perfect, nor should it be. Vintage silver items may also show age appropriate tarnish. I do notclean the pieces I offer, as collectors and connoisseurs of vintage silver jewelry do not want their valuable pieces stripped of the patina which has taken many years to acquire and is actually quite desirable. I take numerous photos, many with a macro-lens, to show the fine details of each piece, so please take a close look and consider them as part of the description. Don't assume anything if it's not in my description.
