Vintage Taxco Sterling Silver Mixed Metal Pierced Earrings, Sunray, Scalloped, Domed,11.8 Grams, Mexico,#c521
For offer today, I have this lovely pair of sterling silver, mixed metal pierced earrings from Taxco, Mexico!

These beautiful Mexican earrings are comprised of sterling silver and brass. They are round in shape with large, domed silver centers and lovely gold brass rope accents. A gorgeous scalloped frame with stamped sunray and circle designs frames the center domes. The earrings are pierced, post style with push on sterling backs. The contrast of the silver and brass metals with the fabulous stamped designs is simply wonderful!

The earrings measure about 1 1/16 inches in diameter and weigh 11.8 grams. They are signed and hallmarked "TN-45, Mexico, 925" on the back of one earring and "TS-134, Mexico, 925" on the back of the other earring. 

These earrings are bold and beautiful and the marvelous scalloped and stamped edges give them a wonderful touch of feminity! With their mixed metal motif, they could be worn with either gold or silver, making them quite versatile. They would make a fine addition to a Mexican silver jewelry collection. The earrings are in excellent vintage condition. There is a slight difference in the widths of the brass rope details on the earrings. Since they are marked with two different Taxco registration numbers, this difference is most likely the result of being made by two different silversmiths. The difference is nominal and I don't think it would be noticed when the earrings are worn, but I have discounted them for this anomaly. 

SIGNED: TN-45, MEXICO, 925 ON THE BACK OF ONE EARRING AND TS-134, MEXICO, 925 ON THE BACK OF THE OTHER EARRING

LENGTH: APPROX 1 1/16 INCHES IN DIAMETER

WEIGHT: 11.8 GRAMS

CONDITION: EXCELLENT, PRE-OWNED, VINTAGE CONDITION NORMAL SURFACE SCRATCHES FROM PREVIOUS USE/WEAR/STORAGE. THERE IS A SLIGHT DIFFERENCE IN THE WIDTHS OF THE BRASS DETAILS ON THE EARRINGS. SINCE THE EARRINGS ARE MARKED WITH DIFFERENT TAXCO REGISTRATION NUMBERS, THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE RESULT OF BEING MADE BY TWO DIFFERENT SILVERSMITHS. THE DIFFERENCE IS NOMINAL BUT THE EARRINGS HAVE BEEN DISCOUNTED FOR THIS ANOMALY.
