Here's one that DIDN'T get away and we're glad about that. This vintage Taxco Mexican fish pendant is solid sterling silver and it's still hooked on the unusual intricate rope and hook bail.
You'll be hooked too on the way this was made...a Modernist design with raised open gills, a turquoise eye, and a tail and body that are hinged and dangle freely from the frame of the fish.
The fish measures 1 1/2 by 3 3/4 inches (with bail). It hangs from an added 19 inch sterling silver chain that has a magnetic clasp. The back of the fish is hallmarked with the Eagle 2 - maker's mark and initials (not totally legible) - 925 - MEXICO. The necklace weighs 21 grams. It's in excellent vintage condition...showing high-quality workmanship and very creative Modernist design.
