Mexican sterling silver necklace is a magnificently designed and executed vintage necklace in a modernist design that came from the estate of a prominent collector of Mexican sterling silver jewelry who passed away in the 1980s. This remarkable necklace measures approximately 17-1/2" (wearable length when closed) by approximately 1-1/4" and tapers to approximately 5/8" at the black. Impressive hand silversmith work that intricately combines 52 sections of this spectacular necklace can be seen on our picture of the reverse of the piece. The necklace features a hidden box clasp that works well and closes with a click. It weighs approximately 147.4 grams of .925 sterling. After much research, we believe the signature on this piece to be, "TB - 36" which would date this piece after 1980 and "Mexico 925". It is in Excellent Condition. This necklace has a fluidity of movement that will drape the neck in a sleek, halo type collar of lustrous sterling silver texture. A uniquely wonderful vintage Mexican sterling silver jewelry reflecting the design and craftsmanship of the best of Mexican sterling silver jewelry!
This necklace is very similar to an Antonio Pineda necklace photographed on Page 144 of Berk & Morrill's, "Mexican Silver". The fact that this necklace is signed only "Mexico" and not Taxco leads us to conclude that there may be a connection.
