Vintage Los Ballesteros Topaz & Silver Necklace

DESCRIPTION: Offered for auction is an amazing signed Los Ballesteros LARGE medallion pendant necklace. This piece is fully and appropriately hallmarked and signed- the eagle registry mark dates it between 1948-80- cannot read the number. In addition, the 'patina' (tiny scratch marks- wear - showing the piece is actually of the vintage mentioned) is appropriate for a piece of this age. The necklace links are sterling silver and are silver soldered closed. Figures around the LARGE center stone appear to be in ceremonial dress- wearing masks- and headdresses- all appear to be different. Please note the footprints just below and around the stone - all oriented from bottom center to the clasp- as are the ceremonial figures.

Please refer to photos and use the supersize feature! I paid extra so that, hopefully, you can see things I and my trusty camera might have missed.

WEIGHT AND DIMENSIONS:

The pendant (medallion) and necklace weigh a substantial 68 g (2.4 oz.) . The necklace is 26.5 inches (67.31 cm) long. The medallion is 2 5/8 inches in diameter (6.68 cm) by 7/8 of an inch (2.22cm) high.

Questions and requests for additional photos are always welcome!!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my listing. Enjoy the auction!!
