on Mar 2, 2017 in archived, Pins/brooches

Big, bold and beautiful an early Mexican Deco pin / pendant in a starburst design, its rays executed en repoussage and profusely adorned with beading, wirework and beautifully colored amethyst cabs. The brooch is paired with a repousse chain that is perfect for it albeit a little later – the two look fabulous together and you can always wear the brooch alone while enjoying the chain with a different pendant…

Hallmarks / Date: “MEXICO SILVER” on pin / pendant; “STERLING 925” and Eagle 4 on chain; 1930s-40s for the former while the latter is from the 1950s-60s

Condition: excellent vintage with no damage to the silver work nor the stones and great patina
