Pieces by Rafael Dominguez do not come around to often any more. He is noted by Penny Morrill in the book Mexican Silver for his heavy silver and exceptional workmanship. This necklace is splendid weighing 106.5 grams. The drops are 1.25in. long and they are very heavy repousse. The necklace is 16in. long and features an 8mm bead and cylinder chain to support the piece. There are two tube beads together on the chain. Probably sized in its lifetime like most of Mexican pieces were sized to fit the new owner. Collector quality, JUST LOOK AT THAT NECKLACE!
