SIGI PINEDA DESIGN VTG TAXCO MEXICO MEXICAN STERLING SILVER BIOMORPHIC NECKLACE


Description

This is a MAGNIFICENT vintage sterling silver necklace that was hand wrought in Taxco,Mexico, after 1978, in a sculptural modernist design that was originated by renowned silver maestro, SIGI PINEDA. This necklace is not signed by Sigi and was made by another documented artistwho used the "TN-27" registration mark. This gorgeous necklace is masterfully crafted in aunique, artistic design. The front of the necklace has a central pendant (4-1/4" long and width/dropof 2-3/4") that has overlapping biomorphic silver designs with incised forms ~ the design has exceptional flow and movement. The interior/middle portion of the pendant has neillo andthe contrast between the darkened silver and the sterling silver is REALLY dramatic! The pendant is permanently attached to a necklace that has rectangular silver links that are connected with smallerdecorative rectangular links that part of the design, so the necklace has beautiful, 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 exceptional necklace is extremely well made in an elegant and sophisticated design ~ an bold and beautiful art-to-wear piece that would be a grand asset to any vintage Taxco silver collection!

SIZE: Inside circumference when closed is 19-1/2", width/drop in front is 2-3/4", and weight is83 grams.

CONDITION: Excellent vintage condition ~ no dings or dents to the silver ~ minor surface scratches consistent with loving wear and age (and actually desirable on vintage pieces) ~ just about PERFECT used condition!

HALLMARKS: "TN-27, MEXICO, 925". Registration hallmark "TN-27" is shown on page 121 in Bille Hougart's highly respected source book, The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks, (2001 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.
