This wonderful sterling silver pendant, or rather large charm for a bracelet, was designed by the Margot van Voorhies Carr, otherwise known as "Margot de Taxco". This pendant depicts the Zodiac sign Cancer, a water sign, and measures approximately one and five eighths inches across. Cancer, the crab, represents those born from June 21 to July 22. In good vintage condition with age appropriate wear.
Margot designed the Zodiac signs in several different series' including this round solid sterling silver set, there was also one done that was highlighted with enamel, and a set that was square. All series were approximately the same size. The round solid sterling series does appear to be the more available of the series' although, not common. Margot had also taken elements from this round series and made pins from them as well.
Right now we do have two Cancer pendants available.
