Vintage 970 Silver Hoop Earrings, Clip earrings by Modernist Antonio Pineda, Taxco, Mexico. They are 11mm wide and slightly over 1" long. They are rounded on the ends. Heavy earrings with strong clips. Weight is 24.77 grams. They are signed with a crown look with the initials HNT NII, Taxco Mexico used in the frame and also signed hecho in Mexico and .970. This is higher silver content than sterling. This came from PA. estate sale. Good condition to very good condition with typical vintage tarnish that I do not clean as most buyers of silver vintage pieces indicate a preference for leaving the piece as is. When I saw these at the estate auction I knew they were special without having an opportunity to touch, feel, and inspect. See photos. Lot. Loc. W.12.118G.1X1 LD 12/28/18.
Antonio Pineda was born in 1919 and died in 2009. He was an internationally renowned Mexican modernist silversmith known for bold, striking designs. He studied painting and sculpture as a child, and was apprenticed at William Spratling's Taller de Las Delicias before founding his own workshop in 1941. He is the subject of "Silver Seduction: The Art of Mexican Modernist Antonio Pineda" produced in conjunction with a 2008 exhibition of his work at UCLA's Fowler Museum.
We carry mostly vintage jewelry across all themes in my stores and listings. We have our own store and are and have been known as stampshopgirl in Ebay and have been since I think 2003. At one point we had a gift shop/rubber stamping store and switched over to vintage jewelry about six years ago on a full time basis, which also including taking and completing gemology classes as well as jewelry appraisal studies. We carry limited other vintage items and am trying to change our presence to marias vintage and estate treasures. You may see both names until the migration is complete. You can find us on pinterest where all ebay items and other venues are categorized - mariasvinta0654.
If the item is over $50.00 for international mailing will need be sent with insurance at the buyer’s cost. That may require separate invoicing.
WE DO NOT STORE FINE METALS AND GEMSTONES ON PREMISES. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT QUESTIONS MAY NOT BE ABLE TO BE ANSWERED IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU.
Thank you for stopping by, mariasvintage.
Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
