always such a pleasure to get work by the taller of Los Ballesteros
whose work is widely known and highly collectible. This is a very nice pair of sterling silver earrings featuring a tribal figure in high relief above an oxidized ground. The earrings close with well working screwbacks.
Los Ballesteros work can be difficult since they are still producing
today and were inconsistent in hallmarking throughout the years, I
estimate that these earrings date to circa 1940s as verified by Hougart's book on Mexican Silver marks.
family taller of Los Ballesteros began silversmithing in Iguala in
1937, then moved to Taxco in 1941 where theywere and continue to bea
large and very successful manufacturer and retailer.
