Please read this description carefully. It will contain the information associating this magnificent piece of jewelry with Taxco's Margot de Taxco. It is made from the original Margot's molds,
by a gentleman, senor Melesio Rodriguez Villalba, who worked with
Margot Van Voorhies Carr for 24 years, and now, at his 73 years of age,
he continues making these beautiful pieces. He was responsible for the
execution of many of Margot's designs. His
artist's registry number of "MR." "TR-114" is widely recognized as one
that uses Margot's original molds. This is such a piece!!!
Please feel free to contact me for further information on sr. Villalba, and his place in the overall picture of vintage Taxco jewelry.

This one has a nice multi green enamel and little details in black
enamel. It is a
wonderful design, produced by "Margot de Taxco". It was
first introduced in the early 1950's.
