am pleased to offer this wonderful, and quite rare, sterling silver and enamel pin by Margot van Voorhies Carr, known as Margot de Taxco, circa 1955. When I found this pin, I was so pleased because I had never seen this design by Margot before, leading me to believe that this is a rare design. The pin is a gorgeous, Art Deco inspired sterling silver and black enamel made into a stylized musical motif. Nicely sized and impressive when worn, the pin closes with a safety clasp. I am also providing a new, sterling silver pendant converter and a newer sterling silver and vermeil (1 ring is gold wash to give it some glitter) chain so that you can immediately wear this nice pin as a necklace. Just remove the chain and you can once again wear it as an impressive pin.
I also have the matching earrings for sale in another listing: matching earrings. Truly wonderful and unusual!
The 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.Hallmark: Margot de Taxco Sterling Made in Mexico Eagle(16) 5299Size: Pin/Pendant: 1 5/16" x 1 7/8"; Chain Length: 20"; Grams: 21Condition: Excellentvintage
