Vintage Taxco, Mexico STERLING SILVER & Wood Inlay Necklace & Earrings!

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....

AGE: C.1940 or so

ITEM: A 2-part silver set from Taxco, Mexico - a necklace and the matching earrings. In a "comma" design, all the piece have inlay work that seems to be a brown wood of some sort. The earrings are screwbacks while the necklace has a "hook" closure that goes into the last link of the necklace. The manufacturer of the set is Q. Valladares - a maker I am unfamiliar with.

CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot (anything you THINK you see, is just flash from my camera). Mellow patina to the silver.

METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver

HALLMARKS: Q. Valladares 925 STERLING Taxco along with an Eagle Mark 3.

SIZE: Necklace measures 15-1/4"; width is 3/4". Extra length could be added to the necklace with a bit of large link chain at the link end. Earring fronts measure 1-1/4" x 3/4".

WEIGHT: Earrings weigh 9.3 grams. Necklace weighs 45.2 grams.

FINAL COMMENTS: A most interesting set that is extremely well made. No information can be found on Q. Valladares though some speculate he might be Quintin V. - again, a Taxco maker of jewelry who also has no major information regarding his designs.

New postal rates and Import Regulations are in place for the shipment of jewelry to other countries.

My UNDER $35 listings I will ship First Class International however I can only calculate postage when I know where the piece is going so I'll put POSTAGE TO BE DETERMINED in the International Section. Rates have gone sky high since the Jan 2013 price increase - just as an example, 2 ounces to Canada is $6.49 (my average weight for sending), 4 ounces to Italy is $9.55. OUCH!

Any purchase OVER $35 must be checked against the new Import Regulations before I can send. Again, postage will be determined AFTER I check the regs. If you want to save time, please contact me BEFORE placing a purchase order so I can give you a more accurate idea as to whether or not I can send and/or how much postage will cost. Each individual country now has its own particular set of rules regarding shipment.

Currently, shipment of jewelry to MEXICO, SINGAPORE and THAILAND is strictly PROHIBITED by the USPO. If you are from these countries please contact me before placing a purchase order.
