A vintage sterling gold plated Mexican Aztec mask necklace, set with turquoise. The necklace measures 16 inches long , and is comprised of twelve Aztec masks, meeting in the center at a circular pendant set with turquoise. The back of the necklace is made up of chains which lead to the clasp, which is an unusual little sculpture in itself, with a "mythological " Aztec figure attached to it. The clasp is good, but has to be used with a gentle hand. This is an original hand made necklace. There is a silver mark"925", and a "maker's mark on the reverse of the central pendant, though I was unable to identify the mark. The necklace weighs 27.9 grams. Good vintage condition.
