early Los Castillo Mexican silver Pin / Brooch ~ winter pine cones repousse des. 149

on Nov 16, 2017 in archived

Perfect for the holidays and the cold winter days, this early Los Castillo brooch features pine cones and evergreen branches rendered in repoussage with a mod brushed finish. This is a big piece but not overwhelmingly so and the fact that it is repousse work makes it light enough to be worn on silk blouses as easily as on heavier clothes…


Size/Weight: 3 1/8″ long by 1 1/2″ wide; 20.9 grams

Hallmarks / Date: appropriately signed with the taller’s early signature in straight capital letters and marked with des. no 149 as well as “TAXCO STERLING MEXICO”; pre-1948

Condition: excellent vintage with a beautiful finish, very sculptural repoussage, warm patina and no damage or repairs noted
