Vintage Mexican Silver & Turquoise Collar, the hinged collar inlaid with turquoise mosaic.

The hallmarks indicate that this item, dates from the 1980's and was made in Taxco.

HALLMARKING, MEXICAN SILVER
In the first half of the 20th century silver items manufactured in Mexico were marked simply "silver" or "sterling". Usually a location (Mexico, Iguala or a town name) and silver fineness (925, 925/1000, 950, 980) was included.

In 1948 the Government of Mexico promoted the reintroduction of the "eagle mark" to identify the manufacturers of silver items. The "eagle" was stamped with a number associated to a silver manufacturing company. This system was unsuccessful, eagle stamps were misused or "loaned" to more than one artist of maker and was finally abandoned.

In the 1980's the eagle mar was replaced by a "letter and number" system which is still in use today.
In this system a letter identifies a location (T for Taxco, M for Mexico City), the second letter is the first letter of an individual's first or last name of the maker. The number is the number of registration of the maker.

SEDGWICKS pride ourselves on sourcing and selling Antique & Estate Jewellery that is of fine quality and in great condition.

Antique & Estate Jewellery is seldom in perfect or ‘new’ condition as age is inherent for it to be classified as such. Nearly all items we sell are ‘Second-hand’ and will almost certainly show some signs of wear. These may include faint scuffmarks and small dents, even very minor repairs. These are considered acceptable when dealing with objects that have lived a full life. Any imperfections or minor damage will be listed in the description and visible in the photo.

We do ask that you carefully view the photographs provided and note we are happy to supply more images or fuller description if requested.

To help you make your assessment, many higher value items are accompanied by an Independent Valuation for Retail or Insurance
