Vintage Salvador Teran Sterling Modernist Earrings, Eagle Mark
With inlaid green stones, perhaps malachite and/or turquoise, these sterling silver earrings by Salvador Teran are abstract in design with a modernist flair. Measuring 1 5/8" x 5/8", they are in good vintage condition but may require light buffing because of surface scratching. They are posts which are not original (originally they would gave been screw back) but are well done. They do not come with silver backs. The back of one earring is signed "Salvador" in script and numbered "200" ; the other earring has the eagle assay mark with 36 and "Sterling Mexico." Salvador Teran worked with William Spratling before branching off on his own, and his work is known for Pre-columbian designs. Today his jewelry is rare and prized. His pieces bring prices comparable to Spratling and Antonio Pineda.
