Vintage Iguala Mexico Sterling Silver Matador Bullfighter Storyteller Screw Back Earrings - Guerrero #c921

Regular price $51.00
These wonderful Mexican earrings are pre-eagle pieces from Iguala, Guerrero, Mexico and date to the 1940s. The earrings are comprised of fine sterling silver and have a flat, freeform shape. The earrings are storyteller pieces that depict the figures of a matador and a charging bull. You can just feel the motion and excitement of the matador pulling his cape away as the bull charges forward when you see these earrings! The figures are recessed and oxidized a flat black, which highlights them beautifully against the shiny silver. The earrings close with screw back closures. They are absolutely striking!

The earrings measure about 13/16 inch long, 1 1/16 inches wide and weigh 8.5 grams. They are signed and hallmarked "IGUALA GRO 925 W" in a circle around the artist's initials 'JPH" on the back of both earrings in the pair.

These earrings are wonderful examples of early Mexican silver jewelry! They are so unique and are sure to be great conversation starters when worn out. They would make a fine addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection and a very nice gift! The earrings are in excellent vintage condition. There is a tiny bubble hole that occurred when crafted and you can faintly see part of the hallmark stamp in the oxidized portion of the bull on one earring (see photo #9). This doesn't detract at all from the beauty of these awesome handcrafted earrings!
