Antonio Pineda Mexican silver modernist leaf Pin Brooch

on Aug 10, 2020 in archived

It’s almost the middle of August but this vintage Antonio Pineda brooch makes me think of leaves twirling in the wind filling the world with the fiery golds and reds of Fall. It is characteristic of the design genius inherent in some maestros that they can take a simple, familiar form and put such a twist to it (in our case literally), the form turns into a little work of art. This is a very sculptural brooch, the sense of motion it holds within it strong, its patina to die for. Real beauty does not have to be fussy…
