Margot De Taxco signed/hallmarked piece.
It is a Mayan-style face surrounded by swirls. The piece is from the Mask series.
The design is champleve style enamel & sterling silver.
On the back, there is a pin.
Champlevé enamel is created with indented areas that are carved or cast into the metal and then filled with the enamel. After the enamel has been fired, the object is then filed and polished, leaving the non-indented areas without enamel. The name Champlevé comes from the French word meaning ‘raised field’.
This design is featured in the book: "Silver Artists of Modern Mexico, Dreaming In Silver" by Penny Morrill for Schiffer, Pg. 255." The design shown is a necklace.
