Butterflies, Ribbons and Bows in A Margot Specimen Necklace

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Magnificent and bold silver necklace is curvilinear throughout. It can be interpreted as abstract ribbons and bows or as a butterfly motif.The leading authority on Mexican Silver believes this to be a piece created for a competition by Margot. The necklace changes form in many unique ways. The centerpiece, or bow section, can be separated and worn as a large brooch. (Image 2) In georgian and victorian periods, such a piece was known as an stomacher and was fastened above the waist. This same centerpiece, if separated once again, becomes two fluid brooches to be worn as imagination sees them. (image 3) The entire necklace may be fitted for wear just below the neck or lower on the chest by adding or subtracting links provided. This is a one of a kind example of the silver art of Mexico in its time of high creativity. Contact me for exact measurements of each part
