As early as the 1920's
a small
town located midway
between Mexico City and Acapulco  became a tourist destination for items made from sterling silver.  Some makers incorporated the city name "Taxco" into their shop name. Small silver shops dotted thet village and some remain today.

Hecho en Mexico =
(made in Mexico)
Plata = Silver

A spread eagle is the Gov't assay mark used

between 1946-1979
After 1979 Registry marks were required i.e. TS-24...TAXCO

This is a vintage squash blossom necklace from an estate of quality Mexican silver and sterling jewelry. It does test silver. The necklace is 20" long with silver beads with hanging "blossoms". The pendant is about 2" long. Hook clasp in back. The small dangling bead/blossoms are intricately engraved and there is a hanging charm in the center of the pendant. This is an old piece and there is no marking except for a scratched in signature which looks like NYY.

The squash blossom necklace originated with the Navajo Indians and then was adopted by other tribes. It was an agricultural symbol. The pendant was actually taken from that of the Spanish Conquistidors horse bridles. The necklace originated around 1880. Some were plain and some were eventually decorated with turquoise and other stones and silver charms.
