This vintage, (Mexico) Eagle 25 hallmarked sterling silver necklace features 25 links of double scrolls. Each screw earring is a replica of a link. This is a wonderful example of early Mexican silversmithing done in classic curves. Vintage Mexican silver jewelry has a very sensuous vibe!
Measurements: The necklace is 16 inches long with each link .875 inches wide by 1 inch tall. The clasp is a simple slip hook. The set weighs a substantial 90 grams. The screw earrings are each the same as 1 link.
Condition: The bracelet is in excellent vintage condition with no issues.. Please review all photographs carefully, as they are an essential part of the description.
Marks: One link is stamped with with an Eagle 25 hallmark. There is also a barely visible, partial stamp right along the edge of that same link, but it is not sufficient to identify. According to "The Little Book of Mexican Silver Trade and Hallmarks" this hallmark was assigned to Tango Aceves (who seemed to specialize in silver housewares), Geraldo Lopez (who used other hallmarks more frequently), ME, and Sigfrido Pineda (whose other designs are a modernist style and he also used Eagle 36). None of the names listed seem like the likely maestro. Each earring is also stamped "SILVER MEXICO." The Eagle hallmarking system was in place nationwide by 1948 and continued until the early 1980's.
