Made in the early 1940's, (pre eagle stamp) this bold necklace was produced in Taxco, Mexico. Entirely hand wrought in 980 silver, or 98% pure silver, it is a necklace which was designed to lay impressively and perfectly on the neck. There are 15 panels of abstract hand cut and assembled rectangular shapes with bubbles (half circular silver balls) attached to the triangular shapes giving it an abstract human figure aspect. Each piece is joined by sterling silver rings. Each design element is 1" at its widest point by almost 1.5" long. Necklace is 18.5" in length, when closed; 18.25" wearable length. Closure is a simple hook and ring that is very secure. An unknown maker, however a great eye catching piece and another interesting design form from the early Taxco, Mexico silversmithing design period.
