I have what appears to be an early Taxco Los Ballesteros piece and can only make out some of the Artists name. Wondering if anyone can help me figure it out. I see the first initial clearly--it's "A". The Last name has several letters missing...here's what I'm able to read:"_ _ NOS". The N has this symbol on top " ~ "
It also has a green stone -- would anyone know what this stone is called?
