Maestro Mondragon created pieces of exceptional quality and this is of no exception. He was of note in Penny Morril's books of Mexican silver. The weight is 97 grams and the length is 17.75in. wearable. The widest point measures .75in. It is hallmarked as shown and the eagle reads #17. The balls are repousse as you can see in the underneath photo. All the links are hand carved and this means that a lot of tedious work went into this creation. Condition is superb and when a piece is made to last like this one is, condition is not a problem. Truly a treasure, LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
