A fierce Aztec deity bares his teeth on this sterling silver necklace. The pendant is a round disc elaborately engraved with a fantastic face. Inlaid dyed organic material frames the face in a fiery red ring. The pendant hangs on a large bale from a faceted sterling silver cable chain. Marked on the back, "Mex," "TG-271," and "925." Circa 1980.

The "TG-271" mark indicates this piece was made in the Mexican city of Taxco by the two hundred and seventy-first silversmith to register their mark at the Taxco assay office with a name beginning with "G." This alphanumeric hallmarking system was instituted in 1979.

Details.....The pendant measures .80" in diameter, 1.30" with bale. In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of their charm.
