These Mexican sterling silver earrings are extremely well constructed. Twisted leaves are composed of sterling silver wire, three-dimensional and impressive in size. The effect is graphic and quite striking. These earrings are clip ons. Marked on the back "TJ-82" and "925". Circa 1960.
The city of Taxco is an important center for Mexican silver jewelry design. During the 1940s Taxco drew jewelry artists from all over the world. The main attraction for the designers and studio jewelers was the abundant supply of locally mined materials; silver and semi precious gems. The "TJ-82" mark indicates this piece was made in Taxco by the eighty-second silversmith to register their mark at the Taxco assay office with a name beginning with "J".
Details.....The earrings measure 1.90" by 0.73" by 0.84" wide. In Very Good Vintage Condition. You should expect some wear on all vintage and antique jewels; we consider it part of their charm.
