About

Large stylized purple agate sterling pendant by Los Ballesteros. Signed on the back Talleres de Los Ballesteros. Taxco. Sterling. 925. Hecho en Mexico. It has the B and eagle mark 47 which dates from the 1950s-1979/80.
The iconic Los Ballesteros family legacy was established in 1937 by Jalil Majul Ballesteros. The studio won several awards and had designs which were influenced by pre-colonial architecture and cultures of the region. The chain appears to be a replacement but is sterling and was found on the estate piece. One slight indention on the center bottom scale design but the rest is excellent.
The piece also opens in the style of a pill box or locket. The pendant measures 2.5" long x 2" wide. The chain is 23" long.
