The inlay work on this two-sided sterling silver pendant is exceptional and that's because it was made by Juan Delgado of the Taller Delgado in Taxco Mexico.

Delgado was a silversmith at the William Spratling workshop prior to opening his own workshop so he certainly learned from the best.

Each side of this hefty thick pendant features a stylized character with Aztec Mayan influence. The characters are silver inlay with background created with genuine inlaid stones including turquoise, malachite, abalone, coral and other colorful stone bits.

The pendant measures 1 1/4 inches across by 1 1/2 inches high with bail. It's about 3/8 inch thick. Weighs 16.2 grams alone and 23 grams with the long 24 inch sterling silver chain marked 925 Italy.

The pendant bail is marked PLATA 925 - TD-103. This is the Taxco hallmark for Taller Delgado, listed in both the Morrill/Berk book "Mexican Silver" and in Bille Hougart's "The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks".

Excellent vintage condition. It's a unique two pendants in one piece, crafted with a high degree of skill. Circa 1970.
