big Mexican Deco silver and agate Pin Brooch ~ berries on a branch

on Jun 29, 2020 in Mexican and Latin American, Pins/brooches

I love these Mexican Deco “berries-on-a-branch” brooches! They are big and impressive and the berries come in different colors depending on the kind of agate used. I am always on the look-out for the best examples, the ones in which the silver branches are hefty and interestingly entwined and the berries made of good quality stone, rich in striations and color-variation. Admittedly a piece that requires a winter garment – it would be too heavy for a delicate silk blouse – yet one that would also look fabulous as a small work of art on your dressing table…
