    I bought the Taxco earrings from a local charity shop when I lived in Dalyan, Turkey. The TM is for Taxco Mexico. The number 214 is for the 214th silversmith registered in Taxco. Paid 2 Lira - less than $1.00 - for them.

    The other pair came from one of the summer flea markets here in Holland. That pair is on the heavy side, stamped .925 on the triangle section They look like two Chinese hats put together. $2.00.

    Thanks for looking.

      When I was in Turkey 15 years ago, I haven't spotted any charity shops. Is that a new thing for that country or was I not looking hard enough?

      davyd286 - there are several charity shops/second hand shops where I lived. Two in Dalyan and two in Ortaca. There was also one in Kas. Two of these shops raise money for the animals. Another was to raise money for the local school. The shops in Ortaca were just regular second hand shops with furniture and all sorts of other interesting things.

      val - I've never seen earrings like those before. Could be 1940s. They weren't made in the Netherlands as there is no Dutch silver stamp.

      Will be sure to try and find them next time I travel, thanks.
