Here we have a remarkable early set by the Mexican Taxco artist Jose Anton. This circa 1940s set is hallmarked Anton Sterling Taxco Mexico on the pin and simply Silver Mexico on the earrings. The pieces are set with natural amethyst cabochons with fascinating inner inclusions. The stones have an open back and wide prongs that mount them to their sterling silver settings.
The pin measures 2-1/4'' x 1-1/4'' and the earrings are 3/4'' x 5/8''. These pieces have not been polished and exhibit a deep patina. There is roughness and chips to the edges of the amethyst cabochon in the pin, mostly to the underside. It is an impressive domed stone that measures about 1-1/4'' x 1/2''. They are gorgeous vintage pre eagle pieces.
