This is a beautiful pair of sterling silver earrings by Margot van Voorhies Carr of Taxco, Mexico, circa 1955. The earrings are in a leaf form, solidly cast, and closing on the back with well working screwbacks. These are early work with the # 5271. Lovely!

The history behind Margot is fascinating. Margot opened her shop in 1948 and she also created many of the designs for Los Castillo before her marriage to Antonio Castillo ended. Her work is well respected and highly desirable to collectors. Margot designed every single piece that her company produced.

According to Morrill & Berk in the great book Mexican Silver, "Margot's insistence on meticulous production techniques resulted in a high level of workmanship for every piece she signed". Owning a piece of Margot's work is a must for any high end Taxco collector.

This piece is absolutely guaranteed to be original and vintage, it is NOT a reproduction.
