.....lovely margot......

I am pleased to offer this sterling silver pin by Margot van Voorhies Carr, known as Margot de Taxco, circa 1950s. This is a well known design by Margot and a picture of this exact pin "Ballerina" is shown in Morrill's book on Margot, entitled: Margot van Voorhies, the Art of Mexican Enamel, on page 72, Plate II-13. The pin closes with a well working safety clasp. It is a beautiful and striking piece, immediately recognizable as the work of Margot de Taxco when worn. Note that Margot made these pins in several sizes, this is one of the larger sizes.

The history behind Margot is fascinating. Margot opened her shop in 1948 and she also created many of the designs for Los Castillo before her marriage to Antonio Castillo ended. Her work is well respected and highly desirable to collectors. Margot designed every single piece that her company produced.According to Morrill & Berk in the great book Mexican Silver, "Margot's insistence on meticulous production techniques resulted in a high level of workmanship for every piece she signed". Owning a piece of Margot's work is a must for any high end Taxco collector.

This piece is absolutely guaranteed to be original and vintage, it is NOT a reproduction.
