Description

This is a sterling silver Ankh pendant made in Taxco, Mexico sometime in the 1940's. The Ankh measures 2" from the top of the bail and has the eagle mark. The Ankh is signed by the artisan that crafted the piece, Jesus, Taxco. It is in excellent vintage condition and will make a beautiful statement.

What does the Ankh represent?
The Egyptian symbol of life, perhaps the life which remains after death. It takes the form of a cross with a loop instead of an upper vertical arm. It is conjectured that it symbolizes the union of the male and female principles, the origins of life, and that like the American cross, it typifies the four winds, the rain-bringers and fertilizers. It is usually carried in the right hand by Egyptian divinities. This symbol of a cross with a handle is also known as crux ansata.

Back in the early 1970's, Cher, a fashion icon, was seen wearing an Ankh on the Sonny and Cher TV show. She started a trend in Egyptian jewelry. It was wildly popular to wear Ankhs with all your Bohemian fashions. It was worn on a leather cord choker style. A very exotic look...
