Interesting black ceramic face on plated silver, pewter - or some other silver base metal. Measures 1.75"x3.75". Beautiful work.
Salvador Teran was an artist who made beautiful ethnic silver and gold plated jewelry for the Marbel department store, Mexico City in the 1960's. I think the market was mainly directed to tourists. Gold plated examples are most desirable. My pendant above is very well-crafted w/no dings or scratches. Marks on back are a little hard to read but in #3 states "Marbel Mexico" and below the ceramic face says "Salvador - 12"? I'm not sure of exact lower mark.
