For sale here is a BIG pair of rare vintage 1950s handmade married metals (metales casados) sterling silver copper and brass Mexican modernist geometric design screwback earrings by Victoria of Taxco and designed by Ana Nunez de Brilanti. The Victoria workshop in Taxco was one of the few workshops in Taxco (besides the Los Castillo workshop) that created original design in married metals, although their production in this time-consuming technique was much smaller than that of Los Castillo, thus their pieces are considerably more rare and harder to find. A wonderful example of their masterful craftsmanship, these earrings are in a geometric design that I've seen used in cufflinks as well. This design is in four colors of metal, dark and light silver (both sterling silver), copper, and brass. Each measures 1" in diameter, and the pair weigh 8.8 grams total. Marked as shown in my last photo, "Victoria Mexico Taxco Metales Cony" and design number "174". Most of the married metals pieces in Taxco were given a clear-coating to prevent them from tarnishing, and this has caused them to tarnish unevenly which shows as lines across the surface. This is only wear-thru to the clear coat, not damage to the piece itself. The clear coating can be removed with a toothbrush and acetone (nail polish remover). I don't do this myself as some collectors prefer the item to be all original, and leave any changes to the new owner. Excellent vintage condition with just the above described light wear and tarnish as shown - please look at the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
