COMMENTS: Vintage Margot's Beautiful sterling Parure. This designer Margot is a highly sought after designer. Subtle dimensions are created by the overlapping hinged design. The bracelet and earrings are in the same style. The necklace measures 16" in length. The matching bracelet measures 8" and features a safety chain. The earrings are a screw back style they measure 1 1/2" in length. This set has acquired a dark rich patina. The set is triple Hallmarked "Margot de Taxco, #5513 -A, Sterling, Made in Mexico, Eagle 16". 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.
