Original Mexican Necklace



Product ID: 21333 Category: Tags: , , , ,

1950s, Mexico
From the 30s – 70s talented artisans reproduced stone works of ancient pieces made by the Maya, Olmec, Mixtec and others of the region.  Those made in the 40s and 50s were particularly good and inspired by people like Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo who collected these ancient arts (and some reproductions!).
The maskette is a greenstone, as the ancients preferred and the silver is sterling.

Maskette: 2 3/8 x 2 7/8″
