Casa Figuero was the work place and studio of Fidel Figuero and his wife. This was also the place of the Taxco School of the Arts in the 40's and 50's. You seldom find his work and when you do expect something wonderful. This necklace is 980 silver and is very white which provides a canvas for the most extremely deep hand chasing with blackened recesses. The weight is 130 grams and the wearable is a comfortable 17in. Each link is 1 inch tall and has smooth hand rolled edges. One such detail of quality is the thickness of the silver at 1/8th inch thick. No damage of any kind, just LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
