A very good quality enamel and silver pendant/brooch on chain which was made in Mexico by Margo Van Voorhies Carr circa 1940-50. It is really well made with an obvious Japanese influence coming through in the enamelling technique which has been stippled, and the design of the flower itself. The chain is also enamelled in the same style. Margo was an American who went to Taxco. Mexico in 1937. She met and married Antonio Castillo who ran a company called Los Castillo. She designed many amazing pieces for the firm until her marriage failed and she left in 1948. She then set up her own workshop and continued until her death in 1974. She is best known for her silver and enamel pieces such as this necklace.
