early Deco Mexican silver Pin Brooch ~ pre-Colombian design with turquoise dangle

on Oct 27, 2016 in archived


Early Mexican Deco silver repousse brooch, hand-wrought in a design that combines pre-Colombian motifs with the colorful surprise of a turquoise dangle. I love these pioneer pieces – their workmanship has something very earthy about it, as if the anonymous maestro’s hands are still there to be seen working the silver. Very reminiscent of early Matilde Poulat jewelry and perfect now that the weather calls for heavier jackets and coats…
