Vintage Mexico City Sterling Silver Double Ball Screw Back Earrings - Pre Eagle - Modernist #c737
This is a beautiful pair of sterling silver screw back earrings from Mexico! 

These fabulous early Mexican modernist earrings are comprised of fine sterling silver. They are pre-Eagle mark pieces and feature two large silver balls that are arranged vertically, one on top of the other. The balls are three-dimensional and are accented by silver swirls on both sides. The swirls are angled in opposing directions, adding flair to these wonderful earrings. The earrings close with screw back closures. They are gorgeous and so unique! 

The earrings measure about 1 1/4 inches long, 11/16 inch wide and weigh 8.0 grams. They are signed and hallmarked "Sterling" (partially obscured on one earring) and "Mexico" on the back of both earrings and also "DF 925" on the back of one earring, which indicates they were made in the Federal District of the City of Mexico. They are also marked "AM Alpaca" on the screw back mechanisms, meaning that the backs are made of a base metal mix.

These earrings are beautifully bold and so impressive! They definitely make a statement and would make a superb addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection. They would also make a fine gift for anyone who loves modernistic silver jewelry. The earrings are in excellent vintage condition for their age. They came to me very heavily tarnished and have been cleaned, although some patina still remains in spots. They actually look shinier with less patina to the naked eye than in my macro photos. They are marvelous vintage beauties!
