Older (1955-1979) Mexican vintage inlay dimensional abalone sterling silver earrings
in leaf design. Note inlay silver veins in leaf. The colors are dark & vibrant, photo is a little off.
earrings were originally screw back earrings as you can see in the photos; they have been converted to pierced for modern
wearing and the signatures were not lost.
Workmanship and design is exceptional.
silhouette eagle mark with a 3 on these
earrings indicates silver from Taxco. The Marks inside the eagle I believe to be those of Enrique Ledesma's Shop, Plateria
Ledesma & Insignia must have been the artist.
Ledesma worked, at various times, for the shops of Spratling,
Los Castillo, and Hector Aguilar before opening his own shop, Plateria Ledesma around 1950. Ledesma died in 1979.
