am pleased to offer these wonderful, and quite rare sterling silver and enamel earrings by Margot van Voorhies Carr, known as Margot de Taxco, circa 1955. When I found these earrings, I was so pleased because I had never seen this design by Margot before, leading me to believe that they are a rare design. The are a gorgeous, Art Deco inspired sterling silver and black enamel made into a stylized musical motif. Nicely sized and impressive when worn, they close with well working screwbacks. Truly wonderful and unusual!
history behind Margot is fascinating. Margot opened her shop in 1948
and she also created many of the designs for Los Castillo before her
marriage to Antonio Castillo ended. Her work is well respected and
highly desirable to collectors. Margot designed every single piece that
her company produced.
According to Morrill & Berk in the great book Mexican Silver,
"Margot's insistence on meticulous production techniques resulted in a
high level of workmanship for every piece she signed". Owning a piece of
Margot's work is a must for any high end Taxco collector.
This piece is absolutely guaranteed to be original and vintage, it is NOT a reproduction.
