Mariposa Mazahua Sterling Silver Earring with Silver Filagree Drop
A beautiful, wide and ornate sterling silver earring made by Mazahua artisans near Mexico City. This is a very pretty traditional butterfly shaped earring with a fist at the top holding the lovely wide filagree work that features one lovebird sitting in the middle. There is a large silver"gote" or drop at the bottom. These are the earrings that Frida Kahlo loved and wore often. It has a lovely patina, making it look old. Stamped .925 Mexico. Mimi is wearing a different pair with a flower at the top rather than fist but the size is the same!
